About BartonPlus: Sign in with Touchstone

Touchstone sign-on for your BartonPlus folder

Use Touchstone to sign into your BartonPlus folder, so you can save searches and results.

You'll be offered a one-time opportunity in BartonPlus to create a new Touchstone-enabled account or to link to your existing EBSCOhost account. After you click on "Sign In" in BartonPlus, you will see this form:

 

If you do not have an exisiting EBSCOhost account, please follow these steps.

  1. Choose “Continue without linking an existing My EBSCOhost account."
  2. Enter your first and last name and an email address. (This email will only be used to notify you of any problems with your account. It will not be made publicly available.)
  3. Click “Continue.”

 

If you already have an EBSCOhost account and want to link it to Touchstone (recommended), please follow these steps.

  1. Choose “Link your existing My EBSCOhost account to your institution account now.”
  2. Enter your first and last name and an email address. (This email will only be used to notify you of any problems with your account. It will not be made publicly available.
  3. Click "Continue."
  4. You will see this form:

  5. Choose “Link your existing My EBSCOhost account to your institution account now.”
  6. Enter your EBSCOhost User Name and Password.
  7. Click “Continue.”
  8. In the future the linked account will be authenticated by Touchstone. The private EBSCOhost user name and password will no longer be needed.

 

If you already have an EBSCOhost account, and do not wish to link it to Touchstone, please follow these steps.

  1. Choose “Continue without linking an existing My EBSCOhost account.”
  2. Enter your first and last name and an email address. (This email will only be used to notify you of any problems with your account. It will not be made publicly available.)
  3. Click “Continue.”
  4. A new account authenticated by Touchstone will be created for you automatically. Your EBSCOhost account will remain unchanged, and you will still need to use your private user name and password to log into it. You can switch among these accounts by clicking the “Switch Accounts” link at the top of the BartonPlus page.
