When using an EBSCO or other subscription database, do I have to create an account with them to save resources to a folder?


EBSCO, ProQuest, and other vendors allow users to save references to a folder. You can do this as an anonymous user, and the references will be stored for the duration of your browser session. However, the references will not be saved for future sessions. In order to save references for future sessions, you will need to create a personalized account on the vendor's site.

Some vendors prefer that you use your Johnson email address as your username. In any case, the password you select for your personalized account should be different than the password you use to access your Johnson email, Sakai, etc.

You will need a My EBSCO account in order to check out/download EBSCO eBooks for offline reading.
