Link your existing myEBSCOhost account to myPlymouth

As of June 7, 2017, all myEBSCOhost accounts are created and accessed by logging into myPlymouth. This guide explains how to link a pre-existing myEBSCOhost account to myPlymouth.

Effective June 7, 2017

If you have an existing myEBSCOhost account and you wish to preserve it, you must link it to your institution account (myPlymouth).  You have just one opportunity to do this.  If you do not link your account, it will be lost along with any articles and folders it contains.

If you have any questions, please ask a librarian for assistance.

Access the Account Linking Page

First, click or tap the Sign In link in the navigation bar at the top of any EBSCO page.
