Welcome to EBSCO Single Sign-On (SSO)

logoEhostLgThe Library will be moving to Single Sign On (SSO) with EBSCO on 5th June. You will no longer be required to create an additional personal user account but instead you will only use your GUID to use all the platform functionality.

If you have an existing EBSCO user account, the first time you access EBSCO after 5th of June, you will be given the option to migrate the information saved in your previous EBSCO user account to your new Personal Folder. This will happen automatically – you do not need to manually transfer the information yourself.

Important note: we would recommend you save any important content in your current personal user account to your desktop before you link your existing account to the new Personal Folder after SSO goes live, in case any of the information does not transfer during this migration.

The first time you access EBSCO after 5th of June, click “Sign In” or “Folder” in the top toolbar:

Ebsco SSO 1

You will then see the screen below where you can choose between two options: 

  1. To set up a new MyEBSCOhost/SSO Personal Folder account. To do this please select the option: “Create a new My EBSCOhost account and link it to your institution account
  1. To link your existing MyEBSCOhost account to your new SSO Personal Folder. To do this please select the option: “Link your existing MyEBSCOhost account to your institution account now” and provide your User Name and your Password.

EBSCO SSO 2

Once the accounts have been linked or a new account has been created, you will no longer have access to your previous EBSCO personal account.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact eresources@lib.gla.ac.uk
