EBSCO/Cinahl Single Sign-On (SSO)

The Healthcare Library of Northern Ireland is now able to provide Single Sign-On (SSO) for EBSCO resources.  These resources include some databases such as Cinahl Ultimate.

Single Sign-On (SSO) provides seamless authentication and personalization to EBSCO resources.  You will not need to manage a separate login to access your MyEBSCO account. You will use the Healthcare Library login credentials to institutionally authenticate and to seamlessly access your personal MyEBSCO account.

If you are prompted to consent to the creation of a MyEBSCO account click on Continue Personalized, a MyEBSCO account is created and you are automatically logged into it. On subsequent logins, you will be immediately logged into your MyEBSCO account.

If you do not grant consent by clicking on Skip for Now, you will receive an error page as you are required to personalize in order to access any EBSCO products.

I already have an EBSCO account – how do I retrieve my existing searches?

If you already have an EBSCO account with saved searches etc. you are still able to access those.  In the database click Sign In at the top right of the screen & then click Switch Accounts also at the top right. Login with your existing EBSCO account details. Your saved searches will then be accessible by clicking on Folder.

If you have any questions please contact your Specialist Librarian.
