Ebsco is actually a publisher that provides a number of different databases, all with different names. The library provides access to 57 different Ebsco databases through the library website. There is also a platform called Ebscohost, through which a single Ebsco database, or all Ebsco databases, can be searched.


One way to access Ebsco databases is to go to the library website homepage and click on the Databases link at the bottom of the One Search box. In the dropdown menu that says "All Publishers," select Ebsco. This will show you all Ebsco databases that the library provides access to.



Academic Search Complete is the most popular Ebsco database because it is multi-disciplinary, providing articles from a large variety of subject areas. There are also other databases that provide articles for specific subject areas, such as Business Source Complete for business, or SocINDEX with Full Text for sociology. You can also choose a subject from the "All Subjects" dropdown menu to find all of the databases that are likely to have articles for your subject area.



If you are already in an Ebsco database you can choose additional databases in order to search multiple databases at one time on Ebscohost. To do this, select "Choose Databases" from above the search box, then select any or all of the databases you want to search and click OK. When you return to the search screen you will be searching multiple Ebsco databases at one time.
