My EBSCOhost Tutorial



Welcome to the My EBSCOhost tutorial, which demonstrates how to set up and make the most of the free personalization (My EBSCOhost) folder, allowing users to extend the usage of EBSCOhost

search results beyond their current session. Personalized folder accounts are simple to

set up, and can be created by any user accessing EBSCOhost.


In addition to search results, My EBSCOhost users can store Images, Videos,Persistent Links to Searches, Saved Searches, Search Alerts, Journal Alerts and Web Pages created using

EBSCO’s free Page Composer program. From within the Personalized folder, users

can print, email, save, or export search results, images or videos.


We’ll begin by clicking on the Sign In to MyEBSCOhostlink. Click on the I’m a new user link and fill in the fields. Click Continue. Once your information has been accepted, you will automatically be logged in as a personalized folder user.


When you conduct a Basic or Advanced Search after logging in to your personalized folder, you can save particular Result List items to your personalized folder by clicking on the Add to folder link to the left of the relevancy bar for each article. These saved search results can be examined more closely at a later date, as well as printed, emailed or saved to your computer.


By clicking the Alert/Save/Share link and then clicking Add search to folder, you can add a persistent link to a search to your personalized folder, which can then be emailed, saved or clicked later on to run the search, showing any new results that have been added to the database.


After clicking Search History/Alerts below the Find field, you can save searches to be retrieved for later use. You can also print your search history by clicking the Print Search History link.


You can save your most recently conducted Advanced Search as a Search Alert and have EBSCOhost email you with any new search results. Search Alerts can also be retrieved from My EBSCOhost

and used to conduct the search immediately, eliminating the need to wait

for future alert results.


From the Publication Details page of most journals represented in the database you are searching, you can set up a Journal Alert, which will be kept in your personalized My EBSCOhost folder until you

delete it. Journal Alerts provide automatic notification via email whenever a new issue of

the specified publication has been added to the database, eliminating the need to

continually check the database for new issues.


EBSCOhost includes a free web page creation program, entitled Page Composer. It allows you to create customized web pages that can include Result List items, a search box, images and

creative page graphics, which can be used, for example, as assignments to students

(when posted to another web site). The Page Composer program is exclusively

available from within the My EBSCOhost folder, where web pages created

with this tool are stored.


My EBSCOhost also includes a useful chargeback feature, allowing you to track EBSCOhost session usage times for charging back clients. The usage

report information can be printed or emailed to destinations

that you specify.
