KU Medical Library - Embase Guide

Personal Embase Account

Embase offers you the option for creating a personal account, though this not a requirement to use Embase. This separate from your KU credentials, and would be used after you authenticate (if off campus). A personal account allows you save clipboards (collections of results) and set up search alerts to notify you when new articles are indexed based on your saved search parameters. 

To create an account, click Sign In in the upper right of the Embase screen. If you have an existing account you can sign in, or you can create a new one if needed.
