EBSCO Databases - Tips for Using Databases

1. After clicking on Ebsco Host, choose the school libraries link. (For Spanish or German, choose the Spanish or German links.)

2. Next, you will see a menu of databases to choose from. For general research, choose MAS Ultra, Newspaper Source, Middle Search Plus, Master File Premier and Topic Search.

3. Then click continue at the bottom of the page.

EBSCO also has Funk and Wagnall's Encyclopedia available. (Note: Databases that are labeled academic or professional are generally written for college level or above.)

4. Enter your search terms in basic or advanced search. Choose Full Text if you want EBSCO to show only those listings that have the whole article available online. (Otherwise, you will also receive listings for articles that are not available online.)   

Research on an Easy Reading Level

EBSCO Primary Search and Middle Search both allow you to choose the Lexile reading level before you search so that ESL students or slower readers can find articles on an appropriate level. The Advanced Search on SIRS also allows you to choose the general reading level before you search for articles.
