May 17th, 2011 by jimm wetherbee in Announcements, Databases

App for iPhone and iPod touchEBSCOhost introduced an iPhone app for its line of databases.  These databases include Academic Abstracts,  the MLA Bibliography, PscyINFO, and many others.

The new app is free, and offers the convenience and rich functionality that enables you to:

  • Choose which databases to search
  • Limit results to full text or peer reviewed
  • Sort by relevance or date
  • Retrieve full text results in HTML and/or PDF formats
  • Save results for offline access at a later date
  • Email results to self or others
  • View cover flow display of results

To get started log onto the EBSCOhost website with your iPhone, click on the EBSCOhost iPhone/iPod Touch Application link at the bottom of the EBSCOhost screen and follow the instructions.

Basically you will sent an e-mail that provides instructions for a 9-month certificate, avoiding the need to authenticate off of the library’s proxy server.  After the 9-month period is over, you would have repeat the process for another certificate.
