I am trying to make and account on EBSCO host but it says that my username is already in use. I don't think that i've ever started an account
You can access articles on Ebsco without creating an EBSCO account, but if you want to save articles and use extra research tools in that system, you have to create a free account. This is not part of you UNC Asheville account but is more similar to create an account on Amazon or Google. So your username need not be associated with your UNC Asheville username but can be anything you want it to be. Try a very unique username and let us know if you continue to have trouble.
