Chances are that if you have used a library database recently, you have used an EBSCO database. EBSCO provides many of our online resources. You may have noticed the EBSCO and EBSCOhost logos on the resources you use from the library’s web site. ATLA, CINAHL, ERIC, PsycINFO, America: History and Life – these and many more databases come from EBSCO.
In just a few days, EBSCO will implement its new EBSCOhost 2.0 interface. You will notice several new features:

· A basic search screen that is very simple
· An advanced search screen with easy limiting options
· Results lists that include citation and abstract previews and easy limiting features
· Easy ways to sort by subject, source type, author, or journal
· Image quick views – article images visible from the results list
· Visual Search – search for results graphically
· Find more like this – searches for resources similar to the record you are viewing

Preview new designs:
