Do you worry about losing your flash drive with all of your research on it? Would you like to be able to re-run past database searches? Do you find emailing yourself articles cumbersome?
You might want to consider setting up your own EBSCOhost Account. This account will help you keep track of the research you do using EBSCOhost databases. It is free and easy and allows you to:
• Save and retrieve your articles and search history
• Organize your research within folders
• Share your folders with others and view others’ folders
• Create email alerts and/or RSS feeds informing you when new articles on your topic are published
Webster University subscribes to 38 EBSCOhost databases, including Academic Search Premier, PsycInfo, ERIC, Gender Studies Database, Family & Society Studies Worldwide, and SocIndex.
The link to set up your own account is at the top of every EBSCOhost database page. It reads Sign In to My EBSCOhost. When you click on it, select Create a new account. Please note that you must be signed into your EBSCOhost account to save and retrieve articles and search related data.
If you have questions about setting up your EBSCOgost Account stop by the Reference Desk or call us at 314-968-6950 (800-985-4279). You can also email us through the Library website at http://library.webster.edu . Just go to the Quicklinks menu at the top right and choose Ask a Librarian.
