How do I view the EBSCO Discovery Service Result List by source types?

In EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS), you can view articles from a single source type, or multiple source types, by marking the check box or boxes of a Source Type that appears to the left of your search results under the Source Types section and clicking Update.

Some examples of available source types are:

  • Academic Journals
  • Biographies
  • Books/Monographs
  • Conference Materials
  • Dissertations/Theses
  • Electronic Resources
  • News
  • Non-Print Resources
  • Periodicals
  • Primary Source Documents
  • Reports
  • Research Starters
  • Reviews

Note: Source Types for catalog information are defined by values in the MARC records provided to EBSCO during catalog set-up. By default, audio and video works are identified by values in leader positions 06 and 07.
