How to Use EBSCOhost Connection

EBSCOhost Connection bridges the gap between search engines, such as Google, and the premium content in EBSCOhost. If you are affiliated with a library, university, school, or other institution that subscribes to EBSCOhost databases, you can access all material offered. Simply find your library and login.

How does EBSCOhost Connection Work?

You conduct your search using a web search engine such as Google. Results that include a URL of connection.ebscohost.com are available through EBSCOhost Connection. Clicking on the result displays the article citation on EBSCOhost Connection.
