Using the Library's Online Resources

Using EBSCOhost Databases

Library staff created videos to help you research using EBSCO databases. Many library's databases are on the EBSCOhost platform, so use these tutorials as a basis for your searching .

What is a database? It's an index of articles (and sometimes books, films, newspapers, etc.). Search a database to return a list of articles on your topic!
