EBSCO DISCOVERY SERVICE (EDS)

EBSCO Host

EBSCO Discovery Service “pulls together” almost all of our Library resources so that they can be explored using a single search box. Rather than searching the Library Catalog for books and a database, you can search on EDS and get results which include books, e-books, journal articles, and government documents in one list. In fact, you could think of EDS as the Library’s version of Google!
  • Can filter articles written in a specific language
  • Use the plus (+) and minus (-) sign with appropriate keywords to help narrow your search for appropriate supporting information
  • Interactive timeline to limit your search results to a specific time frame.
  • You can select specific databases you want to include /exclude as part of your search.

Handy citation tools helps students easily cite their sources in appropriate MLA or other specific document formats.
