How do I configure EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS) to search within the full text of the records?

The option to also search within the full text of records may be defaulted to "On" for each of your institution's profiles in EBSCOadmin.

To set the default in EBSCOadmin:

  1. Log into EBSCOadmin at

  2. Select from the Choose Profile drop-down list the Discovery Service profile that you wish to change.

  3. Select the Searching sub-tab.

  4. Scroll down to the Limiter & Expander Settings section and select the Modify link to the right of Expanders.

  5. Choose the Default to Select option for the Full Text expander that you prefer (On or Off.)

Note: You can also hide the expander from view by de-selecting the Show option or re-label the text of this expander under Edit Expander Label.
