COM 101: Introduction to Communication Studies: Managing Citations

Your Options

To keep a list of Communication Source citations, you can create a My EBSCOHost account; consider creating a RefWorks account to keep a list of citations from more databases than EBSCO. See below for details, or contact Heidi Senior to learn more.

My EbscoHost

In Communication Source or other EBSCO database, you can create a "My EBSCOHost" account to save citations found in EBSCO databases only, as well as to save searches and to create search alerts. Follow the instructions below to create an account and start saving citations.

1. In an EBSCO database, select "Sign in" in the purple bar at the top of the screen, on the right.

Shows location of "Sign in" link in bar across the top of the screen

2. Create an account, separate from your UP credentials. This account does not expire.

3. Each time you use Communication Source, sign in to your account. Then, on any results list, select the blue folder icon and then "My Folder." You can also create multiple folders, as shown in this picture.

Shows that you can select the Add or Remove from Folder icon to fill a folder.
