About MyEBSCO

All Department staff have automatic access to a MyEBSCO account in EPOCH that allows personalisation of search sessions.

Your MyEBSCO account allows you to:

  • Create projects
  • Curate and bookmark individual EPOCH items
  • Save and re-run searches
  • Access your search history from previous search sessions
  • Set up search or journal alerts
  • Set up searching preferences

There are TWO pathways to your MyEBSCO account:

1. MyEBSCO Dashboard

Sign in after starting an exploratory search from the EPOCH homepage using Quick Search or Advanced Search.
