What is EBSCOhost

The EBSCOhost is a platform that lets you search and uses thousands of eBooks and hundreds of online magazines and journals.

Login to the EBSCOhost

All content on EBSCOhost is covered by a license agreement. This means access is restricted to current students and staff. If you are on campus you are automatically logged into the EBSCOhost. Off campus you may need to enter your school email as username and password.

The EBSCOhost databases are located on the ACK Library homepage, A to Z databases list. In the A to Z databases list you will see the name of the database, a brief description of what it contains.

On or after Nov. 5, 2019, users of EBSCOhostEBSCO Discovery Service and Explora will notice an enhanced video panel appearing in search results. In addition to offering a cleaner, more modern look and feel, this update will enable users to enjoy a more consistent and reliable searching and video-viewing experience. Additionally, it will allow EBSCO more flexibility to bring you enhanced video functionality in the future.
