EBSCO Discovery Service (Trial)

We’re pretty excited about a new product called EBSCOhost Discovery Service (EDS). It has the ability to “search everything” the Library subscribes to, or owns (except ProQuest). Yes, that’s right:

  • Books in the stacks
  • eBooks
  • databases
  • topic specific YouTube videos
  • Library Research Guides
  • EBSCO’s Research Starters.

And all from one user interface. We would like you to explore on campus and at home. Let us know what you think, and tell us about any glitches or links that don’t work.

If you are off campus you can still look at what EDS has to offer, but you won’t be allowed to download anything unless you are logged in with your 14 digit library barcode (or access code).

There are two opportunities to login, the first is at the top of the EDS search page (look for the yellow strip), and second when you click an item to download.
