Ebsco: Email Alerts

Last week I showed how you can find an RSS feed for magazine titles listed in Ebsco. This post will cover how to sign up for a MyEBSCOhost account and register for email alerts.

  • After logging into Ebsco, you'll notice a link at the top of the page, "Sign in to MyEBSCOhost."
  • Click on this link.

  • Notice a link for "I'm a new user."

  • You'll need to provide Ebsco with some information. Be sure to make note of this information so that you can access your account in the future.

  • Submit the data to register for a new account.

Now that you have an account, you can start creating alerts. Search for a magazine title:
  • Click on "Publications," if necessary.

  • Search for a title.
  • Click on the desired title.
  • Click on "Alert / Save / Share."

  • Click on the "Create an Alert" link.

  • A new page will load...
  • Use the drop-down to indicate how long of a period you'd like to receive the alert.
  • Provide your email address.
  • Save your changes.
Now each time a new issue of this magazine is added to Ebsco, you'll receive an alert!
