Integrated Search

What is Integrated Search?

Integrated Search allows you to simultaneously search multiple databases using the EBSCOhost search interface. It is a useful way of determining which databases are best for researching your topic.

Can I use all of the EBSCOhost features?

No. Many of the advanced features will not work with the non-EBSCOhost databases (eLibrary, Opposing Viewpoints, SIRS Researcher, etc.).

You will not be able to:

  • Limit your search to Full-Text records.
  • Limit your search to Scholarly (Peer Reviewed) Journals. Use the Scholarly Journals search box linked on the left menu of the library webpage instead.
  • Sort your results.
  • Use the Select a Field options to focus your search.

Which databases are available through Integrated Search?

The search box below searches the following general/multidisciplinary databases: Academic Search Premier, Credo Reference, eLibrary, LexisNexis Academic (major newspapers only), OmniFile Full Text Select, Opposing Viewpoints, and SIRS Researcher.

Search for articles in multiple databases

Subject-specific search boxes are also available. Each one searches a different set of databases.

You can also use Integrated Search to select your own list of databases.

Where can I find more information?

The EBSCOhost Integrated Search Support Center includes additional information as well as a tutorial. An Integrated Search User Guide is also available.
