How do I change the default start page for eBooks or Audiobooks?

The EBSCO eBooks and Audiobooks databases feature a landing page that can be set as the default start page that users see when accessing the database.

To change the default start page:

  1. Log in to EBSCOadmin at

  2. Select the desired profile from the Choose Profile drop-down menu.

  3. Click the Databases Sub-Tab.

  4. Next to the eBooks or Audiobooks database, select Audiobook Collection or eBook Collection from the Start Page drop-down list.

  5. Click Submit.


  • When Advanced Search is the default search screen for the profile, the selected Advanced Search style is displayed on the eBook Collection start page.

  • When the eBooks and/or Audiobooks databases are included in a profile with other EBSCOhost databases, the landing page is displayed by default only when the eBooks or Audiobooks database is being searched by itself.

  • When the eBooks and Audiobooks databases are included in a multi-database search, the default search screen (basic, advanced) is displayed. However, the eBooks and Audiobooks landing pages are available from the top toolbar.
