E-Books at Okanagan College

My EBSCOhost

If  you want to download e-Books from the database E-Books on EBSCOhost or from most of the e-books that you find in OCtopus, you will need to create a free My EBSCOhost account.

  1. Open either OCtopus or another database from EBSCOhost. (how can I tell?)
  2. In the top right, click either Sign In or myEBSCOhost account sign in.
  3. Click create a new account and follow the prompts.

Important Notes about My EBSCOhost Accounts

  • This account is not linked to any of your Okanagan College or library accounts.
  • When you are signed in, you can save items into a folder for you to look at later.
  • If you close the tab or window you are working in, you will be logged out. If you are not logged in, anything you save to a folder will not be kept for you. If you are adding items to a folder, make sure you are logged in so you do not lose your process.
