When you have a personal My EBSCOhost account, you have your own folder to collect and store information across sessions. All the items you save to your personal folder remain in your folder until you remove them.
Note: You still need to access EBSCO databases through Rickman Library first, then sign into your personal account.
To set up a personal account you need to access an EBSCO database via the Databases by Title link on the Rickman Library homepage:
Click the Sign In in the top toolbar of the screen.
From the Sign In Screen, click the Create a new Account link.
3. The Create a New Account Screen appears with Personal Account entered in the Account Type field. Fill in the fields on the Create a New Account Screen. When you have completed the fields, click Save Changes.
Note the user name and password you created so you can log in at a future session.
To save items to your My EBSCOhost folder:
Sign in to your My EBSCOhost account.
Search for the information that you want to save in your folder. You can save all types of search results to your folder. (For example, articles, links to searches, images, etc.)
Add the items to your folder in any of the following ways:
Add one item – Click the folder icon located to the right of the article title. This adds only the single selected item to your folder. If you have custom folders in your account, select a folder to add the article to.
Add all the items on the page – Click the Share link and then click Results (1–10) link at the top of the menu. This adds all items listed on the page to your folder.
When the article result is added to the folder, the folder icon will change to a folder item icon . Clicking this icon will remove the result from your folder.
From the Detailed Record, you can add one item. Click the Add to Folder link at the top of the tools menu. This adds only this single item to your folder.
