Accessing EBSCOhost Databases

The best way to access all databases at the University of Lethbridge Library, including EBSCOhost databases, is through the "Find Articles" tab on the library's homepage. First select the "Find Articles" tab, then click on either "Databases by Subject" or "By Title." If you already know the name of the database you want to use, it is easiest to search for it by title. If, however, you only know the subject or topic you want to research, it is best to search for an appropriate database by subject.

Suppose you know that you're looking for the popular multidisciplinary database Academic Search Complete. When you click on "By Title," the page below is displayed. You can either scroll down to the database you're interested in or navigate to it through the letter links above the list. When you've found the database, click on the name to open it. You can also click on "[more]" to learn about the database.

Once you've clicked on a database, you'll be directed to its advanced search page. The database name is indicated in green above the search boxes.
