EBSCO Linking

EBSCO provides a variety of options for linking to the EBSCOhost platform, products and interfaces/user experiences. Libraries must decide how to link to the 30+ EBSCO products in a way that best meets the needs of their users. Here are three linking options for the EBSCO products selected for Discus, from the simplest to the most complex.

Support Documents


1. A single link to the Select New Service page.

This page includes a link to the EBSCOhost Research Databases menu, plus links to other databases and interfaces. Since each institution has its own individual EBSCO account, additional products acquired via PASCAL or through individual subscriptions are included on the Select New Service page as well. The Select New Service page shows all of the EBSCO products available to your institution.
Link to: http://search.ebscohost.com/login.aspx?authtype=ip,uid


2. A link to the EBSCOhost Research Databases menu plus links to five stand-alone products, three K-12 student interfaces, and one public library interface.

Stand-Alone Products

Note: These stand-alone products and interfaces are NOT available for searching via the EBSCOhost common menu. They must be added to your library’s website in order for your patrons to gain access to all of the EBSCO resources included in the Discus package.

Libraries must also make decisions about products that can be searched in two ways: via their own interfaces (user experiences), and also via the EBSCOhost platform. The linking URLs are different depending on your library's choice.
