In July EBSCOhost launches it's new interface - EBSCOhost 2.0

EBSCOhost 2.0 is a newly developed interface for the information services and databases that EBSCOhost offers. LLR has several databases via EBSCOhost, including Academic Search Elite, Cinahl, ERIC and Business Source Premier.

Part of the new interface EBSCOhost 2.0

The new interface is developed in collaboration with users and involves quite a few changes. The interface is in general more compact and more transparent than the present.

Features that have become better, and have new positions in the interface, is for example, the ability to limit the search to fulltext articles only or peer-reviewed journals, and the possibility define results for a specific subject. The result list is improved, for example through an icon in shape of a magnifying glass that shows the abstract of the chosen article.

Just as before there is a possibilty to create an account to organize and save your searches. There are also opportunities to bookmark and share results with others through Del.icio.us, Facebook, Magnolia and other services.

In June EBSCOhost offers a beta version of the new interface. You will find the link below. Also take some time to read more about the enhancements of EBSCOhost 2.0!
