EBSCO offers users the ability to establish free, personalized EBSCOhost accounts, known as My EBSCOhost. A free My EBSCOhost account is necessary in order to check out/download eBooks, add and save notes to eBook pages, and place holds on eBooks currently in use by others.
A personal My EBSCOhost account also provides a secure place to store and manage EBSCOhost Result List items, persistent links to searches, saved searches, search alerts, journal alerts, and searching preferences.
Custom folders allow you to better manage and access items saved to your personal folder area by organizing items according to topic, project, class, etc.
You can create as many custom folders as you require. Custom folders can contain articles, images, search alerts, etc. You can customize the name of each folder and determine which folders nest within other folders, to maximize efficiency when managing saved items.
Only three levels of sub-folders nested within a folder are allowed. Folders created more than four levels deep (a top-level folder plus three sub-folders) are displayed at level four.
You must be signed in as a personalized user (My EBSCOhost) to use the custom folders feature.
