EBSCOhost Interface Upgrade planned this summer


The popular Academic Search Complete and more than 50 of CUL’s other EBSCOhost databases will get a new interface in July 2008. Some planned features of the new look include:

  • A cleaner, simpler user interface
  • Related Images readily available beside the Result List
  • Instant article previews from mouse-over action
  • Expand/Collapse side panels
  • Search history displayed above Result list
  • SmartText Searching to provide full results from partial Find field terms
  • URLs that can be bookmarked
  • A convenient, streamlined Cite process for all citation styles

Custom links, personal folders, and alerts that were created in the old version will still work in the new version.
