When you perform a search on the Library welcome page (and most of our individual databases), you will notice an Add to folder link next to every result.
When an eBook or article is open, the Add to Folder link will be on your right, under Tools.
The folder (My EBSCOhost folder) does require you to create an account, but once you've done that, you can sign in to access your saved items anytime!

Once you have an account, you can start saving items to your folder, but the most important thing to remember is you must sign in before you save anything.  Otherwise, once you close your browser window, your saved items will be lost (of course you can always re-find them by doing another search in the library).

You'll notice that saved items will be organized by type (article, eBook, etc...).  You can also create your own folders under My Custom.
