This page details how to install and authenticate the EBSCO Mobile App. To learn more about how to use the app, please see: EBSCO Mobile App - Quick Start Guide


How do I download the EBSCO App?

The EBSCO App is available for iOS and Android devices from the iTunes App store and Google Play.


What are the OS requirements for the EBSCO App?

Your device must be running:

  • Apple iPhones and iPads: iOS 11+
  • Android Devices: Android 9+
  • Chromebooks that support Android apps via Google Play


How do I log in to the EBSCO App?

After opening the EBSCO App, use the Find my Library feature to sign in with your institutional credentials. This is your USD email address and password.

If you have previously created a Personal User Account for accessing EBSCOhost/EBSCO Discovery Service, you can use that to log in to the app. When you log into the app with your personal user credentials, any articles you save in the app are automatically saved to your personal folder.

You only need to log in to the app once. The app remembers your login credentials and you are automatically authenticated for future sessions.

Note: If you log in with institutional credentials, you can create your own Personal User Account from within the app.

To log in to the EBSCO Mobile App:

  1. Open the App and tap Get Started.

  2. Tap the search box to find your library or tap Use my location to find a library near your physical location.

  3. Select your institution from the list and click Next.

    Note: When users of Apple devices select a library from the list, the following message is displayed: “ebscomobile” Wants to Use “” to Sign In. This allows the app and website to share information about you.

    This message is native to iOS when an app transitions to a web browser to prompt for user login. The EBSCO Mobile app is not capturing personal information when it transitions to a web browser for the purposes of logging you into the app.

  4. Tap Continue to allow the app to continue to sign you in.

  5. Log in via the method provided by your institution. (User Name/Password, Patron ID, etc.)
