    LibSearch is our one-stop search tool to explore the majority of the library’s physical and electronic collections. This new tool is a perfect starting point for general interdisciplinary research.

    Create a personal LibSearch account

    LibSearch allows you to create a personal EBSCOhost account. Sign in to save your search results, save permanent links to searches, save search alerts, save journal alerts, and web pages to your personal LibSearch folder. (For more on personal folders, click here.)

    Setting up a Personal Account

    1. Click the Sign In in the top toolbar of the screen.

    2. From the Sign In Screen, click the Create one now link.

    3. The Create Account Screen appears. Fill in the fields on the Create Account Screen. Create an account using your Berkeley College email address.

    4. When you create a new EBSCOhost account, or are updating the existing password for your account, you are required to create a strong password. 

      As you begin to enter a new value into the password field, the strength indicator will reflect how strong your password is using both color and strength value (red X=weak vs. green checkmark=strong).

      When your password meets the requirements, the indicator displays that your password is strong and you can retype the password in the next field to confirm it.

    5. Check the box to consent to EBSCO's Personal Data Retention and Usage policy.

      You can read the Personal Data Retention and Usage policy by clicking the link. If you opt to not consent to the policy, you will be unable to continue creating an account.

    6. When you have completed filling out your information, click Continue.

    7. If your information was accepted, a message appears that confirms your account has been created. To log into your account, click the Click here link and provide your login credentials. You should note the username and password you created so you can log in at a future session.

    Note: When signing in to LibSearch with your credentials, enter the username you created or your Berkeley College email address if you opted to use that as your username.

    If you have forgotten your password, see Resetting your Password.
