How to email EBSCOhost Records?


You can set the defaults for Standard Field Format, Citation Format, email Format, and the default email To address on the Preferences Screen. The selections that are set on Preferences will be applied when emailing.

To e-mail an article:

  1. From the article, click E-mail.

    E-mail Manager Screen

    The E-mailing panel is displayed above the article.

  2. Enter the E-mail Address. To send to more than one e-mail address, use a semicolon between each e-mail address. (For example, name1@address.com; name2@address2.com).

  3. To send the e-mail, click Send; otherwise, click Cancel. A message appears when your e-mail has been sent.

Advanced Features:

To email Linked Full Text:

If you are emailing an article that includes Linked Full Text, you must follow the links directly to the Full Text and then email it. Otherwise, only the citation and any available HTML Full Text will be sent. If you follow the links to the Full Text and it is PDF format, the PDF will be sent as an attachment to the email.

To e-mail persistent links to searches:

  1. Click the Share link at the top of your Result List.

    Add Persistent Link to Search to Folder

  3. From the Persistent Links to Searches area of the folder, click the E-mail icon. The Links to Searches area of the E-mail Manager displays.

  4. Enter the E-mail Address. To send to more than one e-mail address, use a semicolon between each e-mail address. (For example, name1@address.com; name2@address2.com.)
