Here are the directions for authenticating the EBSCOHost app.

  • After downloading the EBSCOhost app, it must be authenticated from within an EBSCOhost profile.  This means you need to access EBSCOHost through our library website at and create your own EBSCOHost login account if you have not already done so.
    • To create an account, go to EBSCOHost and click on Sign In at the upper right corner.  From there, click on "Create a New Account" on the upper right and create your personalized account.
  • Once you log in to EBSCOHost with your personal account, scroll to the bottom of the screen and click on "New: EBSCOhost iPhone and Android Applications."  An email with an authentication key is sent to you.
  • Access the email from your device and click the link found in the email to authenticate the application.
  • You have 24 hours to access the key from your device to authenticate the app. If the key is not used within 24 hours, it expires and you will need a new key.
