EBSCOhost Features / Terms

Searchasaurus

Searchasaurus is a colorful, easy-to-use search interface for elementary and middle school students. It includes Primary Search and Middle Search Plus as well as EBSCO Animals and Funk and Wagnall's New World Encyclopedia.

My EBSCOhost

My EBSCOhost is a personal folder in which you will be able to save result list items, persistent links to searches, saved searches, search alerts, journal alerts and web pages. All of these items can be saved in your personal folder and organized for ease of viewing, adding to/deleting from or editing any of the folder's items.

After you sign in, the EBSCOhost logo displays a "MY" banner on the corner to signify that you have logged in to your own personal folder. You will also be able to save your folder from session to session.

Folder

EBSCOhost allows users to collect results from different searches, store them in the FOLDER, and manage the FOLDER contents to Print, E-mail or Save.  The folder serves as a temporary work space you can use while you search.  By default, the folder is saved for the duration of your online session.

Page Composer


Page Composer allows you to create customized web pages that integrate searches and persistent links with EBSCOhost Web. With the integration of Page Composer into EBSCOhost, you are not required to log in to a different service to create web pages. Once you log in to My EBSCOhost for access to your personalized folder, web pages may be saved and stored there for future management.

Note: To use this feature, you must first log in to My EBSCOhost, and the Page Composer and Personalization Features must be enabled by the library administrator.
