Using Folders in EBSCO

EBSCOHost databases let you save references to a folder as you search. Just click on the "add to folder" links as you scroll down a page of results to add items.

Unless you register for a MyEBSCO account and log in, however, the folder is only temporary, lasting just as long as you're using EBSCO.

If you want your folder to last beyond a single search session, set up a personal account (it's free), and log in to EBSCO when you're conducting your searches. An added bonus is that your folder will accept items from across our collection of EBSCO databases: Academic Search Premier, ATLA Religion, Business Source Premier, CINAHL, ERIC, MLA Bibliography, Philosopher's Index, PsycInfo, and PsycArticles.

If you put references to EBSCO eBooks into the folder along with your article selections, be aware that EBSCO creates one file for articles and a separate file for eBooks.
