How to create a folder in Discovery

Guidance on how to create a personal folder in Discovery, which will allow you to download ebooks and bookmark articles for later reading.

In order to create a folder you will first need to set up personal account in Discovery. 

Please note:

  • Your Discovery account is not connected in any way to your CII membership. It is managed by the provider and not by the CII. If you have any queries, please email and we will do our best to help.
  • The  Discovery folder is used to bookmark articles and other resources to revisit at a later date, or to allow you to download ebooks for reading offline (please see the separate guide on the CII website). You do not need to create an account if you just wish to browse the Discovery service.
