In the past if you wanted to save database articles to a folder it was quite a complicated affair. You would have to create an account inside EBSCO and then sign in to this “add-on” account to save items. Today, it’s a snap, all you have to do is add items to a project! We think Projects is a great way to collect resources, and keep them organized in one place.
EBSCO Discovery Service: New Look
The Library has upgraded to EBSCO’s new Discovery Service. It’s a lot less busy and it’s much easy to find, and save articles. Welcome to a more minimalist interface. You still get the same results but it’s a bit more easier on the eye.
Logging into Databases from Home
It is our all-time most frequently asked question, “How do I get into the databases from home?” In the past, it was a little complicated with 14 digit library issued barcodes, but today it’s super easy! At home or anywhere else off campus all you need is your Bank Street email address and the password associated with that account. If you’re having problems logging in, email the friendly folks at the IT HelpDesk firstname.lastname@example.org

But, there are a few things you need to know to make things go smoothly. The key is to look for Permalinks in EBSCO databases, and Document URLs in ProQuest.
Do We Have Access to JSTOR?
