Q

How do I save an article in EBSCO so I can retrieve it later?

Answer

The best way to keep track of articles you find in Ebsco is through its Folder option.  To use this, you first need to be signed into your personal Ebsco account.  If you do not have one yet, enter any Ebsco database, select Sign In from the top, and then select Create a New Account.  Creating an account is free and only takes a few moments.

When you find an article you wish to access later, click the Add to Folder option next to it.  You can view the saved articles at any time by selecting the Folder at the top of the screen.  You can retrieve the contents of the folder at a later date, on any computer, by going into an Ebsco database and signing in to your account.  While you can save articles to the folder without signing in, the articles you save will be removed as soon as you leave the database.

If you would rather have a direct URL link to an article, do not copy the address in the address bar.  Instead, select the Permalink option next to the article and then copy and paste this link somewhere that you can later access, like an email message.
