how do you find ebscohost on the database? are you able to access this if you are not a student/live in a different states?
EBSCOhost is not a database itself, but rather a company that produces academic databases. These include general knowledge databases like Academic Search Premier and databases specialized for certain disciplines like ERIC for education, Business Source Premier for business, PsycINFO for psychology, CINAHL for nursing, and eBook Collection for books, among many others.
If you want to see all of the available EBSCO databases, you can see the list with descriptions of them here. Put check marks next to the ones you want and then click ‘Continue’. Alternately, while you’re in one of the databases, click the ‘choose databases’ link next to the name of the database you’re in, and you’ll see all their names. You can search any of them or all at once.
EBSCOhost databases are a resource that IU East pays for, so they cannot be accessed off campus by someone without a valid username and password. Some institutions other than colleges subscribe to some of them, though. The states of Indiana and Ohio both do this, although if you use these, you will have access to far fewer of the EBSCO databases than you could get with your IU East credentials. Ivy Tech students also have access to a few EBSCO databases, but again, IU East subscribes to many more.
Let me know if you need any help using these resources.
