Help: Your Profile
Creating a Your Profile account will enable you to maintain a list of Favorite Documents, to view your Document History of the last thirty records accessed under your account, and to maintain a list of Saved Searches. Your Favorite Documents, Document History, and Saved Searches may be retrieved during your next session in CQ Encyclopedia of American Government (EAG). If you do not create a profile and log-in, all session information will be lost when you end the session.
Your personal account will remain until ninety days have passed since you last logged in under Your Profile.
Create a Profile
If you do not yet have a profile, click on “Your Profile” at the top left of the site and
1. enter a username
2. select “I want to create a new account”
3. press the Proceed button
On the next page, enter a password in the boxes provided. In the Password Hint box, type a word or phrase that will help you remember your password. See Password Hint for more information on this feature.
Log on with Your Profile
If you have already created a profile, please enter your username and password to reload your saved information. If you have an account but cannot remember your password, click on “I forgot my password” to retrieve your password hint.
When you set up a username and password, you will be asked to provide a “Password Hint.” This should be a word or phrase (other than the password) that will help you remember your password.
If you have an account but cannot remember your password, enter your username, click on “I forgot my password,” and press “Proceed.” The information you entered in the “Password Hint” field will appear on the screen above the username field in red.
Your account remains in the system until ninety days have passed since you last logged in under Your Profile.
Profile vs. Main Account
The Your Profile log-in is saved within the main account belonging to your library or institution. “Your Profile” accounts contain information that can be accessed only with your username and password, but you must log in through the EAG site owned by your library or institution.
