A Content Guide: Managing Search Results

This is the content guide, do NOT publish. Here is where we will pull informational boxes from.

Setting up an EBSCO Account

Alvernia students can set up an EBSCO personal account.  With a personal account you can save search results and references to your personal folder.

To set up a personal account use the Sign In link at the top of the EBSCO screen. Click the Create a new account link and fill in the required information.

Please record the user name and password you created.  If you forget your password, use the I forgot my password link to reset your password.  Use the I forgot my username and password link to retrieve this information.
