Academic Search Complete has changed

The EBSCOhost company has just made a major update to their user interface. That’s important because we get 56 databases from them – more than any other company! They produce important titles like Academic Search Complete and Business Source Complete. They’ve made the initial page more Google-like, with a simple search box. The search results look different, too. There are many ways to focus your search, by year, type of publication, and other ways. Old features are still there; look at the top of the page and the sides for familiar functions. A great overview is available at http://www.ebscohost.com/2.0_flash. Try it and let us know what you think at 504-864-7111. — Jim Hobbs, hobbs@loyno.edu, 504-864-7126
