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.
Subject-specific search boxes are also available. Each one searches a different set of databases.
- Scholarly Journals
- Applied Technology (includes architecture, automotive, construction, electronics, welding)
- Arts & Humanities (includes literature, philosophy, religion, theater)
- Business & Economics (includes accounting, finance, management)
- Criminal Justice & Law
- Culinary Arts
- Encyclopedias & Dictionaries
- Health & Medicine
- Science (includes astronomy, biology, chemistry, physics)
- Social Sciences (includes history, political science, psychology, sociology)
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.
