Database Update – EBSCO


EBSCO launched their new interface last week so if you have not tried a search in an EBSCO database I recommend you take a look. Besides the keyword searching they are now offering a visual search which I recommend you either really practice with or stay away from.

 I did a search in Academic Search for Global Warming. The first left hand column has you narrow the topic then presents another column to narrow. This is pretty cool if you need help narrowing a topic but try scrolling down a column, it spins like a slot machine!

How do you scroll? Move your mouse to the bottom of a column and watch it spin!  Once you find an article to view clicking on pops up a “Summary” box on the right side.  To view the article click the little tiny “More” link this will open the citation window where you can then select PDF or HTML format.
