EBSCO eBook Academic Collection: Creating an Account

Why create an EBSCOhost account?

An EBSCO account is required to use some of the features of EBSCO eBook Collection, including:

  • downloading an entire ebook
  • storing bookmarks and annotations
  • adding ebooks to folders

Your EBSCO account is separate from your Davidson accounts.  Creating an account is free and takes only a few moments.  You can still use EBSCO eBooks without an account to read, save, and print limited portions of ebooks.

Creating an account

To create an account:

  1. In EBSCO, click "Sign In" on the top of the screen.A screenshot of the sign-in botton in Ebsco eBook Academic Collection

  4. You will automatically be signed in with your new account.
