  • Your Saint Mary's Gmail account comes with access to Google Drive. If you want, you can use it to organize your articles. Learn how to create a folder in Google Drive and upload your articles.

Option 2: Create and use a SuperSearch folder

If you prefer, you can store, organize, access, and share your articles directly from SuperSearch. To do this, you'll need to create an account in SuperSearch (this is different from when you logged in before). Note that you'll lose access to the account when you leave Saint Mary's!

  1. To create an account, select Sign In to EBSCO Folders in the top right side of the SuperSearch screen.
  2. Select Create a New Account.
  3. Fill out the form. Tip: You can use your regular Saint Mary's username and password. But don't use the Continue with Google buttons, as they don't work correctly.
  4. Select Save Changes.
  5. When logged in, your name will appear in the top right of SuperSearch. If it says “Sign Into EBSCO Folders,” click that link and sign in before saving anything.
  6. To save articles, click the blue folder icon to the right of the title of the item you want to save:
