My EBSCOhost account

Accessing your My EBSCOhost account and organising your search results

Logging into DISCOVER or another EBSCO database automatically creates an account for you and gives you access to features such as being able to save and re-run previous searches. You do not need to create an account or remember any username and password, as it uses your usual UoB login.

You will probably want to keep the articles you find in separate folders for each assignment. To do this, you first need to create the folder.

Click on the Folder icon on the top-left of the screen.

In the column on the left-hand side, look for the My custom section, and click on the New link.


Create a new folder for your search results by typing in a name in the box, then Save – you can do this for each different assignment when searching for information

Now you can do your search, and add items to the folder by clicking the Add to folder button underneath each record – if you have created named folders, you will be asked which one you want to save them to

Once you have finished adding items, you can see the contents of your folder by clicking on the open folder icon at the top of the page

Next time you access DISCOVER or an EBSCO database, you will be able to see your previous searches and the articles you've saved, and also to save new searches.
