The most important features of EBSCOhost have been incorporated to provide convenient access to EBSCO resources when you are away from the Trust network. Designed to provide end users with an easy way to access resources, the new app makes research anywhere more convenient. You will be able to:
- Quickly conduct searches and save articles for later reference.
- Discover new content based on previous activity
- Pull up previously saved (or previously viewed) search results.
- Stay organised with access to saved items across devices.
- Share article details or links with mobile-friendly options.
- Leverage device based authentication such as fingerprint ID and face recognition
- Voice to text searching
- Download and read EBSCO eBooks with no need for Adobe Reader
Getting started is easy..
When you have downloaded the app, you may choose Get Started. This will prompt you to search for your Institution – or, if on site, let the app locate you. From there, you will be able to login to the app with your Open Athens credentials. Should you choose SIGN IN, you will need an EBSCOhost account for the personal folder feature.
Once signed in, use the search icon at the bottom of the screen to bring up the search page. You may use the app to search for articles and ebooks, just as you would search databases on EBSCOhost. There are filters under the search box at the top of the screen that allow you to select date ranges and Full Text as an option.
From your initial list of results, click on any result to see a more detailed description of the item. For Full Text items, you can opt for Read Now or head for the arrow at the top right which will allow you to email the article to yourself, upload it to your cloud drive, or share it with colleagues.
