Q. How do I access EBSCO and download articles?

I know how to sign in to the library when I am not on campus in order to search for journal articles, but can I access articles from EBSCO, Taylor and Francis, or Wiley online? If the answer is yes, how do I do that?


We have several databases offered by EBSCO. On the Database page of our website you can search for databases by provider. Here are the results for EBSCO http://www.hshsl.umaryland.edu/resources/databases/?q=&pro=31&r=50#results . Once you find an article, you can click on the Find It button to retrieve the pdf (if there is a pdf icon on the citation page you can click that instead). After you open the pdf, depending on the layout of the pdf viewer, either click on the save icon at the top of the screen, or hover your mouse over the bottom portion of the screen, then click on the save icon that appears.

Find It does not also function the same way. Sometimes, after clicking on Find It, you will need to go through a journal's website and find archived/past articles. Most journals websites will have a search bar that you can use, just enter the title of the article and hit search.
