Automatic sign-in to Discover

February 13, 2020

Discover now signs you into your personal EBSCO account when you enter your Massey username and password.

This means you can download ebooks, save items and searches in folders, and take notes within content without the previous system of having to create a separate EBSCO account (and remember a second username and password!).

Please note:

  • You will be asked to accept a “Personal Data Retention and Usage” form. You need to accept this form to use Discover. You can choose to do this just once; or at the end of each session you can “Remove My Data” (under “Update My Account”) and accept the form each time you use Discover. Read more about this at Why am I required to consent to EBSCO’s privacy policy before logging into my personal EBSCOhost folder?
  • Authentication happens behind the scenes when you first log in, so you will see a blank white screen for a few seconds. This is expected behaviour.
  • If you already have a Discover/EBSCO account and you want to merge it with your Massey username and password, please contact us.
