Setting up an EBSCO Account

Setting Up a My EBSCO Personal Account

Alvernia students can set up an EBSCO personal account.  With a personal account, you can save search results, persistent links to searches, and saved searches 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.

If the user name you create is already in use, try a different user name.

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.  Alvernia library and IT staff do not have access to the username and password you created.

Saving Searches and Articles

Saving searches and articles for retrieval at a later session can be a real time saver while conducting your research. The EBSCO Help file provides instructions on how to save and manage your search results.   You can access this information from the EBSCO Help file or from the links below.
