Northeast Ohio Regional Library System - Event Information


Event Name:Using EBSCOhost and Explora to Search EBSCO Databases
Competency:Reference
Description:OPLIN provides access to a number of full text databases from EBSCO. These range from Primary Search (designed for elementary school students) to MasterFILE Premier (for public libraries) to Academic Search Premier (for colleges and universities), and many more. In this session, we will review tools for searching these databases along with options for using the full text content. We will cover searching in both the classic EBSCOhost interface, with its robust suite of searching and filtering tools, and in EBSCO Explora, an interface designed to be more easily browsable.

Learning Objectives:
  • Explain differences between and appropriate uses for the EBSCOhost and Explora interfaces
  • Perform basic and advanced searches in both, including filtering options
  • Describe the best ways for extracting full text for offline use
