EBSCOhost Toolkit

EBSCOhost is one of our most popular, multidisciplinary databases. It can be a great place to start your research to learn what information is available on your topic or if you’re doing general research on something that spans multiple subjects.

Library Hacks

Use folders to save your research. Creating folders in EBSCOhost allows you to save your research to review or export at a later time.

Use subject-specific databases. While EBSCOhost is a great resource, if you're researching a subject-specific topic (like time management in nursing or using digital tools in the classroom), you'll find more value in using a subject-specific database. These databases typically have better filters and features that allow you to narrow your search more efficiently.

Create alerts. Alerts are a great way to keep on top of your topic. When a new article is published that meets the search criteria you've created, you'll be notified, helping you stay on top of new research in your field. You can also set up journal alerts to get notified when your favorite publication comes out with new content. Check out these guides for more information on how to set up an alert.
