There is now a new way to sign in when you save search results from an EBSCO search. You no longer have to create an EBSCO personal account. This new option takes you through the campus login process and recognizes who you are. 

Once you click the sign-in button you will be able to save search results to your folder.


  • The first time logging in with the new process, you'll be prompted to consent to EBSCO's Personal Data Retention and Usage policy.
  • This refers to data collection necessary for creating and maintaining personal EBSCO accounts and a personalized user experience.
  • Users are only required to consent to this policy one time upon logging in. After consenting, you will automatically be logged into your personal My EBSCO host accounts each time you authenticate into EBSCO.

If you have additional questions, EBSCO has published an article titled  Why am I required to consent to EBSCO's privacy policy before logging into my EBSCOhost folder?
