EBSCO Interfaces User Guide - Personalization and the My EBSCOhost Folder

On EBSCOhost you have your own area to collect and store information called your personal folder. As you’re browsing, use your folder to save articles, links to searches, images, and more. Items you save remain in your folder until you remove them. Only you can access your personal folder.

In order to save items for longer than your current session you must have personal user account.

Types of Personal Accounts

Personal Account - If you are an individual user interested in saving items related to searching (for example, search results, saved searches, etc.) select “Personal Account.” Once you sign in as a personalized user, any items that you collect are automatically saved to your folder for future use.

Charge Back Account - If you are a corporate user (for example, a law firm or an advertising agency) who needs to track EBSCOhost usage on a per client basis for billing purposes, select “Charge Back Account.” In addition to having all features available in a personal account, you can also set up clients, start a timer to track usage by client, and obtain a report of the time spent. Usage information can be printed and/or e-mailed.


The following links are designed to cover the personalization and My EBSCOhost folder functions available within the EBSCO interfaces.

Note: Not all interfaces support Charge Back accounts.
