Do you use a personal MyEBSCOhost account? Do you save articles or searches to folders in MyEBSCOhost?

On December 12, we will be upgrading our login to the university’s new login system, Azure (what EKU uses to login to Blackboard, Google suite, the new parking system, EKU Direct).  Once Azure is in place, EKU students, faculty, and staff will start using their full email address to login to library resources, just like they do for Blackboard. Unfortunately, this switch will unlink EKU logins from any active, personal MyEBSCOhost accounts.

Important! Anyone wishing to preserve the contents of their MyEBSCOhost folders will need to download their saved articles prior to December 12.

This FAQ contains information and directions to help you with this transition.

Aren't sure if you have a MyEBSCOhost account?

  • Login to Academic Search Complete or any EBSCOhost database.
  • Look for the folder icon located in the top, right corner.
  • Trying mousing over that Folder icon - if it says "Folder has items" then you have a MyEBSCOhost account with materials in the account.
  • You can also click on the Folder and see if you have anything in a MyEBSCOhost account. If it prompts you to create an account, then you do not have a MyEBSCOhost account and there's nothing for you to do. Yay!

EKU Libraries does not have access to any MyEBSCOhost account information. Therefore, we are unable to confirm if you have created an account or if you have any content in a MyEBSCOhost folder.


How to save content from a MyEBSCOhost account


There are several different methods you can use to save you content from a MyEBSCOhost folder. Use whatever options work best for you and please ask us if you need any help getting started.


Important! Do not use the "Save to File" folder tool or the "Save" tool on an article record as these tools create links. Related, do not save permalinks to the articles to save them. Links to all EBSCOhost content will change on December 12, 2019 and you will not be able to retrieve EBSCOhost articles or eBooks using links created prior to December 13, 2019.



Creating a new MyEBSCOhost account (if you choose to do so) starting December 16

If you wish to create a new MyEBSCOhost account, you will need to wait until after the EKU Libraries login has been moved to Azure.

We will add information here on how to create a new, personal MyEBSCOhost account -- for those who wish to do so -- on Monday, December 16.
