What are Database Tiers in EBSCOhost Integrated Search (EHIS)?

Database Tiers are customized by your institution's administrator in EBSCOadmin and determine which results will appear on your Integrated Search Result List.

Tier 1 Databases - When a database is designated as a Tier 1 database, results from that database will be displayed in the Result List when a search is executed.

Tier 2 Databases - When a database is designated as a Tier 2 database, searches will be executed in that database but results will not appear in the Result List. Results from Tier 2 databases are available by clicking on the hyperlinked database name in the Integrated Search Panel.
