Search EBSCO

Do you want to search the EBSCO database? EBSCO provides articles and journals pulled from e-journals, e-books, and print subscriptions, which have been published by various sources.  Some examples of the various sources include:  Publishers Weekly, Library Journal, New York Times, Forbes, and many others.  However, only those libraries that have an EBSCO subscription can access the articles and journals, which in these cases, an EBSCO tab displays.   

 

Type a search term in the Search field box, and click Search, as shown below.

Click the EBSCO tab.  If you have not logged on to your account, a log on dialog box prompts for your credentials. Type your Library ID/PIN or User Name/Password credentials.  If you forgot your credentials or for more information on how to access your account, see Log On.  If you do not have an account, register for a temporary library card or see your librarian to set one up.  Once logged on, you are redirected to a new screen, as shown in the example below.

Note: If no results are found, this could be caused from the EBSCO Web site temporarily down or your search term is too broad.  Try to narrow your results by adding more search terms to see if this resolves the issue.  If not, try your search later.     

  

Select how you want to sort your articles by clicking the Sort By down arrow.  Choose Relevance or Date.  The Sort By default is Relevance.  Next to the Sort By drop-down option, displays Page xx of xx.  To view additional article result pages, click the Next button, located to the right of the page number.  To view pages beforehand, click the Prev button.  There are no additional results if either Next or Prev button appears dimmed.  To view additional search results within the same page, use the scroll bar.  

 

The Collapse All expand_all_button.bmp button, located to the left of the Sort By drop-down list, displays your article results with only the article title, and sometimes the author(s) who published the item.  This option allows you to view more articles at one time.  When you click the Collapse All button, the button automatically changes to the Expand All collapse_all_button_articles.bmp button.  Click the Expand All button to return to the original view.  An example of the Collapse All view option and the change of the arrow direction are shown below.
