Setting up a My EBSCOhost Account

Why set up a My EBSCOhost account?

In order to do certain things (e.g., save your search results so that you can access them later, organize saved search results in folders, download e-books, create alerts) in EBSCOhost resources such as OneSearch, Academic Search Complete, Business Source Complete, etc., you'll need to have a free My EBSCOhost account.

My EBSCOhost accounts are completely separate from MyUMUC accounts.

To set up a free My EBSCOhost account:

From any EBSCOhost resource, click on the Sign In link in the upper right-hand corner of the page.

Sign in

On the resulting page, click on the Create a new Account link.

Create a new Account

Fill in the requested information on the resulting page. You can select your own user name and password -- but note that the UMUC Library won't have any record of the user name and password that you've chosen.

Account info

Once you've set up your free account, you can use the Sign In link whenever you need to sign in to your account to save your search results, organize your saved search results in folders, download e-books, set up alerts, etc.

If you have any questions about this, please ask a librarian.
