My EBSCOHost is a feature on EBSCOHost databases including Academic Search Complete, PsycINFO, CINAHL, ERIC, Business Source Complete, and others. My EBSCOHost is separate from your EKU sign in, and you will need to create a My EBSCOHost account to download ebooks from EBSCOHost. You can also use that account to bookmark articles and save your search history. 

Creating a My EBSCO Account

All you need to do to create an account is click "Sign In" on the task bar at the top of the page in any EBSCOHost database and click on "Create a New Account" next to the "Login" button. 

 

Saving to Your Folder

Once you are signed in, you can save articles and searches to your folder. If you perform a search that has a lot of good articles that you want to look at later, you can save the whole search to your folder by clicking the "Share" button and clicking "Add Search to Folder."

 

To add an article to your folder, simply click on the folder icon next to the article in the result list, or click on "Add to Folder" in the tools section after clicking on the article to view more details. 

 

Accessing My Folder

Once you have added items to your folder, you can access it from the toolbar at the top of the page or from the window to the right of the results list.

 

EBSCOHost automatically sorts the different items that you save in your folder. Here, I saved an article and the link to a search.

Using the Email Feature

You can email articles along with the citation format using EBSCOHost. To do so, go to an article and under "Tools," click "Email."

 

A dialog box will open where you can enter your email address and how you prefer to have the document sent to you. To include a citation, select "Citation Format" and choose your preferred format from the drop down menu.
