Q. How can I save my search and articles in an EBSCO database?


  1. Select the EBSCO database you want to work from and log into your free EBSCOhost account.

  3. To save a search or alert:

    • Provide a name for the Search or Alert
    • Provide a description
    • Select how long you want the search saved (Ex: permanent or 24 hours)
