How to Select & Search Multiple EBSCO Databases

Many of our library databases are provided by EBSCO. Depending on your topic, search through the EBSCO databases individually, or save time and search through multiple EBSCO databases at one time!

1. Open Academic Search Complete and click the Choose Databases link.

2.  To search more than one database, mark the check boxes to the left of the database names. You can also use the Select / deselect all checkbox to make your selections. We recommend selecting Education Research Complete. Academic Search Complete will already be selected by default.

3. To save your selections, click OK; or click Cancel to discard your changes.

4. Enter your keywords in the search box and click search.
