Actually, EBSCO or EBSCOhost is a database aggregator which means they are a company that offers subscriptions for libraries and patrons to many different databases.

When students say they need "EBSCO" they usually mean that they are looking for a specific database that is made available through the EBSCO interface.

By far, our most popular EBSCO database is Academic Search Complete. It's basically a buffet of information for all of our academic disciplines. We recommend you begin your article search here most of the time. To access Academic Search Complete, go to Electronic Resources A to Z from our homepage and click on the "A" tab. Academic Search Complete is the second database link in the list.

If you are looking for another of EBSCO's databases that the library subscribes to, try searching for Index/Abstract databases within the subject/discipline section of our Electronic Resources by Subject page.

And as always, if in doubt, contact your Jarrett Librarian via the Ask a Librarian page or our green HELP! button.
