One company that owns a number of the databases in our online library is Ebscohost (Articles are published in journals which are catalogued in databases.) When using an Ebsco database, you can create a "My Ebsco" account in order to save the articles you may want to come back to later. (There are many Ebsco databases, but some popular ones include Academic Search Complete, Business Source Complete, Psychology and Behaviorial Sciences Collection, and ERIC.)

*You must have set up an Ebsco account in order to save these articles.*

In order to set up an account, or log back in to they account you already set up, follow these instructions:

1) Go to the home page.

2) In the top middle-right there is a heading that says "Collections." Click on this heading and then select "Databases" underneath "Electronic."

3) On this page, you will see the heading labeled "Featured Resources" in the middle. Under this heading, click on the option "Ebsco Quick Search." It may require you to log in to the proxy. If so, please use your Liberty username and password.

4) You will now be on the Ebsco search page. You could search for articles using these search bars. In the top center blue bar, you will see the option to "Sign-in." Click here.

5) From this page, you could either set up an Ebsco account or log-in to the account you already created. You can then put articles that you find in researching within the databases into this account in order to return to them later.

If you have any further questions about the My Ebsco account, please contact the library at (434) 582-2221.
