Welcome to the Basic EBSCOhost Searching for Public Libraries tutorial, a concise guide to the most popular EBSCOhost features, including tips on how to make the most of these features in a public library environment.
We’ll begin by conducting a basic search on global warming. The Result List defaults to show All search results, but can be filtered by specific document type or source, such as periodicals, newspapers, reference books, bibliographies, primary source documents, or images, when you click on the corresponding hyperlink.
With the Limit your Results options, you can limit your results, using the options shown. You can also access your available Search Options by clicking on the Search Options link below the Update Results button.
You can print, email, or save a single result from the detailed display when you click on a title link. To print, email or save multiple results, add them to the folder, then print, email, or save them from inside the folder. Folder contents can be saved by clicking on the Sign in to My EBSCOhost link, then setting up a personalized folder account at no charge.
Click on the Subject Terms authority file button along the top toolbar to search by specific subjects. Choose Publications to search within one or multiple publications represented in the database. Click on More to reveal the Images option for access to many types of images, sorted by category.
For example, select Flags, enter United States, then click on Search to be presented with a result that includes a thumbnail image of the American flag.
To view an enlarged image of the flag, including demographics and statistical information, click on the thumbnail image in the result list.
Click on the Help link for access to a complete electronic manual, including an easy-to-use search window, allowing smooth navigation to the answers you need.
