If you’re a frequent EBSCOhost user (Academic Search Premier, PsycINFO, etc) you’ve probably already heard the news. On Wednesday morning, EBSCO finally rolled out the new interface they are calling EBSCOhost 2.0. They say the change “will provide you with the most powerful, clean and intuitive interface available.”
Rest assured that a search in the new interface should work the same as a search the old way. Things are just rearranged, “cleaned up” and hopefully enhanced.
Here’s a quick look at what you will find:
We have definitely run across some…idiosyncrasies. I have a few questions outstanding with the vendor, so I guess it’s still a work in progress. I have also experienced delays and errors on a fairly frequent basis, so please be patient if working on a search. As soon as the kinks are worked out, we’ll update our many guides and other materials to reflect this new interface.
Stay tuned and try to stay with us as we roll with this rollout.
