How do I customize the Search Other Services area?

Administrators for Nursing Reference Center (NRC), Nursing Reference Center with PERC, Patient Education Reference Center (PERC), Rehabilitation Reference Center (RRC), and Enfermeria al Dia can provide links to other EBSCO services (EBSCOhost, DynaMed, etc.) as well as links to professional organizations, etc., in the Search Other Services area of the interface Home page. These links will open in a new window, with the original interface available in the background.

You can enter up to 20 links in this area, but only the first 10 links will display on the interface. If no links are entered, the “Search other Services” area does not display.
