An EBSCO rep recently enabled a new full text feature which provides immediate access to free journals co-hosted through HighWire Press. When a user does a search and a related full text article is available from HighWire, a link will appear in the result list allowing the user to connect to the document from the publisher site. Basically, users have access to even more full text scholarly articles than before, especially in the subject area of science.
Also, in response to feedback from customers, the EBSCOhost interface has had several updates.
A new Image Quick View limiter replaces the Articles With Images limiter
The Image Quick View limiter includes multiple sort options by image type.
Can I limit my EBSCOhost search results to articles that have Image Quick View available? (http://support.epnet.com/knowledge_base/detail.php?id=4207)
Can I set the Image Quick View limiter to display under Limit your results on the EBSCOhost Result List screen? (http://support.epnet.com/knowledge_base/detail.php?id=4206)
Direct link to the Basic Search Screen from both the Basic and Advanced Search Screens
Keyword renamed New Search
Result List mouse over text changed from Refine Search to Search Modes and Limiters
Entire phrase for cited references on Result List replaces the number of references in parentheses
Search mode specified on Result List green bar
Search History View Results anchor positioning improved
Date Slider Bar with original search date ranges
How do I use the Date Slider feature in EBSCOhost?
Additional Help link added to Choose Databases Screen
