Complete the following steps to create a Scout account:

  • Click on Sign Up. This will direct you to sign up with EBSCO, which provides Scout services.

  • You can either click Continue with Google to sign up with a Gmail account or fill out the fields to sign up with an email address.

Once signed up, you will be able to review your search history and re-run any previous search, as well as save materials in Folders, and organize materials in subfolders.
