Which databases are compatible with Explora?

Only compatible databases can be searched in Explora. Use the table of contents links at your left to see which databases are compatible with each edition of Explora.

Notes:

  • An asterisk (*) indicates which databases are most often used with Explora, but ultimately you must decide which databases to enable to provide your user group with the best search experience. For example, you may not wish to include large academic databases, such as Academic Search Premier, in the elementary school version of Explora. You also may not wish to include ERIC and Professional Development Collection (educator databases that come with EBSCO's school packages) in your student-facing Explora profiles. Academic databases and educator databases are best to include in the Explora Educator's Edition profile only.
  • Many of the school reference center databases (Biography Reference Center, History Reference Center, Literary Reference Center / Literary Reference Center Plus, Poetry & Short Story Reference Center, Points of View Reference Center, and Science Reference Center) can also be enabled for searching in Explora. However, the content is best viewed through the dedicated interfaces that come with these products because they offer unique browsing capabilities and feature areas that provide context to students.
  • Consult our Explora Setup Best Practice Guide for Library Administrators for more guidance.
