EBSCOhost Tutorial

The aim of this tutorial guide is to introduce basic and advanced searching with the various EBSCOhost databases. The lessons do not need to be viewed in a single session. It is not important to view the lessons in order but are arranged to facilitate the introduction of more complex and detailed use of the search interface.

The tutorials can be viewed as You Tube Videos or Flash Videos.

EBSCOhost provides excellent help pages. The help button is located at the upper right hand corner of the screen. The database service also provides useful information at its support site, a link to which is located at the bottom of every EBSCOhost page.

And, of course, the library staff is here to help as well. When you are in the library, please ask for assistance at the Circulation Desk; when off-campus, please give us a call or send us an e-mail.

In addition to EBSCOhost, the library subscribes to two other database services, LexisNexis (on campus only) and SAGE Premier (available off-campus with institutional username and password—ask at Circulation Desk for this information). And your local public library, the Los Angeles Public Library, also provides access to useful databases, such as Research Library ProQuest.

There are a number of information resources that can help you supplement your research such as PubMed and Google Scholar. All students are encouraged to visit the Library for more information.
