Working with EBSCO Folders

Items placed in the Folder remain there until leaving the EBSCOhost database or may be kept indefinitely if saved to My EBSCOhost. 

Folder view allows users to print, email, save, or export to a bibliographic manager all articles in a folder. 

If logged into My EBSCOhost, items will be saved to the account.  If desired, users may create a custom folder to save items.  This helps to organize items according to specific subject or research topic. 

Create a Custom Folder: In the lower left menu bar, click New to create a folder.

Name the folder something memorable which describes the content. Sub-folders may be created if desired. Add whatever notes are needed to describe the added content in order to jog your memory later.  Click Save to finish making your folder.
