The Sign In button is on the top right of the search page. You can use that to create an account and access these extra benefits.

As you are searching, you can save records and create a list of sources to help organize your research.

(1) At the top right of each record, click the Save button, symbolized by the bookmark shape  . (2) To access your saved items, click on the Saved button on the left navigation bar.

On the Saved Items page, you will see your recently saved items. (3) You can add your saved sources to projects to organize them as well email them and cite them.


You can use the Projects feature of your MyEBSCO account to organize sources into folders. You can make folders for each assignment or each class your doing research for.

At the top right of each record, click the Projects button, symbolized by the folder shape  . To add a resource to a project from the search page, click the three dots on the right of the result you want to save.

To access your projects, click on the Projects button on the left navigation bar.
