The library wants to let you all know about two exciting upcoming upgrades to the EBSCO resources provided by the library. EBSCO is the library’s primary content provider; this vendor provides our “Search Everything” Discovery search, the bulk of our multidisciplinary content via Academic Search Premier and EBSCO eBooks, and our key discipline specific databases: Business Source Premier, PsycInfo, Education Source, and Atla Religion Database with Atla Serials.
Upgrade access Single Sign On, July 18th: Currently, you sign into EBSCO resources via EZproxy with your Jessup Credentials and access a generic searching experience. In order to save content and searches across sessions, you currently need to download, email, or set up a separate My EBSCO account to save articles, in addition to saving or automating searches. Single Sign On changes this experience significantly by setting up or resuming a personalized searching experience automatically whenever you access resources off campus or over the campus WIFI network. You can save searches and articles to your persistent folder, available across all EBSCO products, without needing to sign in an additional time. You will use your same credentials as before to access these resources, but via your Google Account.
The one caveat is that not all existing My EBSCO accounts will transition to the Single Sign On experience. If you currently use a My EBSCO folder created with the Sign in with Google option, your content WILL NOT transfer to your new SSO account. Please download or email to yourself content you would like to keep from the 18th onward. Otherwise you will need to search for and save this material under your new SSO account. If you created a My EBSCO account apart from Google, you can find instructions to migrate that content here.
New EBSCO Discovery Service Interface, tentatively December 2022: EBSCO is currently redesigning the interface used for our Search Everything tool. This interface is built around personalization, adaptability to various screen sizes, and compatibility with various assistive technologies. You can now preview the new interface. If you decide to take a look, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your thoughts and feedback. The design is actively in development, so if you see an issue or a missing feature, the library can champion your concern or request with EBSCO.
