I have a folder or articles in my EBSCOhost account. On the left of each article, there are words like "export", "cite", and "notes". What do they do?


Please see the answers to your questions below about features in EBSCO's MyEBSCO folder.

On the left of each article, there are words like "export", "cite", and "notes".

  • These features allow you to manage the contents of the folder. For example, if you want to export the citation to a citation management tool like Endnote or Zotero, you can do that. Or if you want to make notes about the citation and come back to them at a later date, the note for that citation will still be there. If you are interested in learning more about citation management and how it can help you organize your research, your subject specialist is Mitch Fontenot. He can provide instruction on this.

What do these actually do? How long will these stay in my folder? I mean, is my folder time-limited.

  • I believe that as long as you are logged into the MyEBSCOhost platform (can login to it at the top of the Discovery search page), the citations will stay there until you remove them yourself. Here are some FAQs regarding how long content is kept in the folder.

How do I delete an arrticle from my folder, if it is not usable?

  • To remove result(s) from your personalized folder, select the result by clicking on the appropriate check box, then click the Delete Items link. You may find this page useful in learning how to use the folder as well.

I hope I've answered your questions. Please don't hesitate to reach out to your subject librarian for more help with how to maximize the use of our resources. And to me as well! :) Have a wonderful day!
