A note about EBSCO
Sending a search through multiple focused databases
EBSCO is not a database. EBSCO is the brand name of a company that supplies dozens of our library's databases.
The advantage to knowing this: you can hand-pick particular EBSCO databases to search simultaneously
Four of those linked from this page—Gender Studies Database, Humanities & Social Sciences Index Retrospective, SocINDEX with Full Text, and Sociological Collection—are EBSCO databases.
Hence you can, if you want, save time by sending the same search through two of these databases, or all three, at the same time. To select databases for such a simultaneous search, hit the Choose Databases link above the search boxes.
Databases are big-ticket items, so vendors frequently offer clients the equivalent of a 'test drive.'
Database trials typically give free access to students and faculty for several weeks. Ideally such a trial coincides with student research projects designed to exploit the resource, thus enabling departments to decide whether particular databases would be worthwhile additions.
If you know of online resources that you would like to try, please tell David Webb or me so the library can look into making optimal arrangements.
Omnisearch A unified, customized index of Kutztown University’s information resources. Essentially allows the researcher to search all of KU's most popular databases using the EBSCOhost interface.
