SocINDEX: What It Is and How to Use It: Creating an account

Indexes the major literature in the field of sociology.

Creating an account

Members of the Stetson community may create an EBSCO account [free] to access additional features of SocINDEX and other EBSCO databases. Click on Sign In in the top right-hand corner of the page, then Create a new Account. The user name and password you create will be common across all EBSCO databases.

This account allows you to save preferences, organize your research with folders, share them with others, save and retrieve your search history, and create email alerts or RSS feeds when new results are indexed that match your search terms.

Adding Items to Your Folder

 After you have clicked on the title of an item in the Result List to see the full record of that item, if you want to mark that record so that you can save or email it, click on  “Add to Folder.”   To un-mark, simply click on “Remove from folder.” (See screen shot below.)

WARNING: Your folder will not be saved after closing the browser window UNLESS you create a (free) account and sign in.


To see what is in your folder, simply click on the folder icon.
