If you did not create a personal account before you logged out of your search session, then those articles are gone.  You can add items to a folder without being logged in to a personal account, but they will only remain in the folder for your current session. Here are the steps to save articles to a folder across sessions:

  1. Begin at the library home page and type in your search terms into the multi-search box (or any EBSCO database such as Academic Search Complete).
  2. Once you get your search results back, look up at the top of the screen for a link that says “My EBSCO Sign In.”  Below is a screen print of the window that will open and you will need to click on the “Create a new Account” link to create a user name and password (if you don’t already have one).

  1. Once you have created your account and have logged in, you can now begin adding articles to your folder and they will be saved for you and you will be able to access them the next time you log in.
