EBSCOhost and EBSCOadmin Updates - Coming Soon:

  • Multiple Database Limiters will appear with those limiters common to all databases being searched, even when they do not apply to all of those databases. Any of the five most popular search limiters: Full Text, Published Date, Publication, Peer Reviewed and References Available may be included in the common limiter area, above the database-specific section on the search screen, provided they are supported by at least one of the databases being searched.
  • Enhanced Clustering will provide more cluster types (controlled by the library administrator), including Publication, Company, Geography, NAICS/Industry Codes, etc.
  • SUSHI Web Service Support means that library administrators will be able to generate COUNTER Reports using EBSCOhost's secure SUSHI Web Service. The automated process will begin when a library's electronic records management (ERM) system requests a usage report to be automatically transmitted to EBSCO via the library's SUSHI client, after which a COUNTER report will be prepared and returned to the library.
