Tips on Searching the EBSCO Databases

This handout illustrates the fine points of searching in the EBSCO databases, including America:  History & Life, Academic Search Complete, Historical Abstracts, and many others in the EBSCO suite. 

NOTE:  Watson librarians advise NOT checking the Full Text limiter in the EBSCO databases if you are working on a major research project.   Often there is fulltext from another OhioLINK source that isn't picked up by the full text limit.  Ask Us if you have questions about finding full text!
