Found it in EBSCO? Store it in EBSCO!

“I found it in EBSCO!” EBSCO provides us with access to nearly 50 separate specialty databases–you may already be on a first name basis with Academic Search Premier, but EBSCO also provides access to more specific tools, like EconLit, Environment Complete, PsycInfo and the Military and Government Collection, among others.

All of these search tools allow you to save your searches and citations by creating folders within the EBSCO interface. You may have noticed a little folder icon in the top right corner of your search screen. When you click on it, you should see a message that says: “To store these items in the folder for a future session, Sign In to My EBSCOhost.” From there, you can create your new account! This will allow you to save your searches or specific citations, add notes to specific citations, organize your research into folders, and share your folders with group members. You can also create email alerts or RSS feeds that can keep you up to date as research meeting your search criteria is added to the database.
