When you place a hold on an EBSCO eBook you will receive a notification in your e-mail as soon as the book becomes available. At that point you will have 24 hours to access the book before it will be made available to other users.

Step 1: Click "Sign In Now"

Step 2: Sign in with your MyEBSCOhost Account or Create a New Account. This is free and easy. It is separate from your PatriotsID and library accounts.
