Coming To a Virtual Library Near You: EBSCOhost 2.0

While we are the first to tout the virtues of our EBSCOhost databases we are so grateful to receive through GALILEO, we agree the search interface has been on the side of plain vanilla. 

Get ready for a change! 

While I received an email notice about this nearly a month ago, this afternoon is the first time I’ve taken the opportunity to watch this wonderful sneak preview of the new and improved EBSCOhost 2.0 interface!  Be sure to take some time to view this Flash video that will give you a guided tour of the new EBSCOhost 2.0!

As you know, we are fortunate to have access to many of the high quality EBSCOhost databases through GALILEO, but now these databases will have several new features that make the databases even more searchable while offering patrons more options for personalizing content delivery.  The new look and features make the database look like an information portal in the vein of Pageflakes! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I think the new changes are definitely going to make these databases more user-friendly and more appealing to our users!   The new interface should be available to most us in July 2008, so it will be here in time for our next academic year. 🙂   I am truly excited about this new “facelift” for our EBSCOhost databases!
