EBSCOhost New Features

Enhanced PDF Viewer:

EBSCOhost features a special viewer designed to streamline the browsing of an entire issue, or all available volumes and issues, from one screen. There are also several helpful features to enable users to easily navigate and manage open PDFs, including:

  • TOC column with instant access to citations with title, author and subject detail
  • Hyperlinked access to full text issue contents, by article or chapter titles
  • A convenient list of hyperlinked thumbnails to illustrations
  • Expand/collapse arrow to control open PDF view

To view a short demonstration of this new feature, click here. (Or, if your email is set on Plain Text and negates the link, copy and paste this URL into your browser: http://www.ebscohost.com/special/movies/pdfViewer/ThePDFViewerInEBSCOhost.htm)

Three Additional User Interface Languages

We have added Dutch, Romanian and Slovenian to the existing, substantial list of languages into which users can instantly translate the user interface screens in EBSCOhost, (enabled by the library administrator).

Subjects on Result List Items

Due to customer feedback, individual records within the EBSCOhost Result List now display subject headings for all applicable databases and libraries.  Please comment here or contact Christa Werle (x7160) if you would like this feature enabled on our subscription.
