Important notes about EBSCO accounts:

  • You can choose any username and password you want. EBSCO accounts are not associated with Walden University. This is a completely individual account you are creating with EBSCO to use their folder feature in their databases.
  • Whenever you enter any EBSCO database, before you add to your folder, you will need to login first. The folder will work the same across all databases from EBSCO.

  • The EBSCO account folder is not accessible from non-EBSCO databases.

  • If you would like to keep lists of articles you find across different types of databases, regardless of which company owns them, you might be interested in citation management software such as Zotero. Learn more about Zotero.
