Creating an account
Most of the library's databases provide added functionality to users - once they have created a personal account. This includes saving and sharing your research online (searches, search results, bibliographies, note-taking, etc.), setting up automatic Alerts to new content as it is added to the database, and downloading eBooks.
To create an account, open the database and select Create an Account or Sign In, depending on the database. Be sure to write down your new username and password.
NOTE: Most of the library's database are published by only four vendors - EBSO, Gale, ProQuest, and H.W. Wilson. Once you have created an account in a particular vendor's database, your account is good in all that vendor's databases.
