Research Resource of the Month: EBSCOHost

EBSCO is a major academic database supplier, covering a wide selection of journals, trade publications and other literature in all sorts of subjects. EBSCOHost is their online platform.

You’ve probably used EBSCOHost before: City Library Services subscribe to their databases for all our subjects.  Find out which is best for you using our Library Guides, in CityLibrary Search, or by browsing our Database A-Z .

You can search EBSCOhost databases individually to narrow your search down to a specific subject, or choose a combination of databases to search across all at once – use the ‘Choose Databases’ link just above your search box to change this at any time.

The advanced search options can create powerful, specific searches to get the most relevant literature, and the ‘Search History’ option lets you view, edit and save your past searches.  When you’ve found an article you want, you can save the PDF, email it, create a citation for it to copy and paste, or use the ‘Export’ button to add it to your favourite bibliographic management tool.
