Managing Your Research

Citing Your Sources

I have never met anyone who jumps up and down with joy when it comes to creating a bibliography. This tip might though!

  1. On the right side of the screen, click on Cite
  2. Choose the APA format
  3. Cut & paste the citation into your bibliography. Caution: Sometimes there are errors so make sure you check the citation for accuracy.

Using EbscoHost in PsycINFO

The PsycINFO database offers a great opportunity to manage your research. You can place articles into a folder, save your searches, and create notes about your research. The information remains in a folder indefinitely so you can access it any time. You can create multiple folders for different research projects.

Getting Started:

  1. In the blue tool bar, click on "Sign In"
  2. You will need to "Create an Account" the first time which only takes a minute or two. Occasionally the password part is quirky so you might have to try a couple of times.

Save Articles:

  • When viewing citations, click the "Add to Folder" button.

Save Searches:

  1. Click on "Search History" located just under the search form
  2. Click "Save Searches / Alerts"
  3. Name your search and save

Create Notes:

  • When viewing a citation, click on the "Create Note" link on the right side of the page.

Retrieving Articles & Searches:

  • Click on "Folder" in the blue tool bar. In addition to a list of your articles, you will get these links on the left side of the page:

My EbscoHost is available in over 60 Library databases.
