Guidance on how to create a personal folder in Discovery, which
will allow you to download ebooks and bookmark articles for later
In order to create a folder you will first need to set
up personal account in Discovery.
- 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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
