Website Analysis: EBSCOhostAn Outstanding Research Engine and Academic Tool


Finding Scholarly Articles can be quite the a hassle. Fortunately, EBSCOhost has made it simple for students to find a variety of great sources from one database accessor!

-As a communication major with a sociology minor, accessing, reading, and incorporating scholarly sources is a common task for me. EBSCOhost aids me in these tasks.

-EBSCOhost deserves a positive evaluation based on its organization, variety of features, and audience appeal.


-EBSCOhost makes navigation simple for users

-The Search Engine is located in the middle of a page that is otherwise mostly blank.-Search options include: Basic Search, Advanced Search, Visual Search, and Search History


-The Basic Search is a good place to start if one is broadly searching a topic.-The Advanced Search is helpful when looking at a topic more specifically, and trying to gather supporting evidence.-The Search History is useful when working over long periods of time.

organization visual search

The Visual Search option is awesome for watching a topic being narrowed. It is simple to use and extremely organized, allowing for defined searches of any research topic.-The user types in their topic of choice.-The user then selects a keyword from the list of options.-The overall search is narrowed, and the user gets to choose anotherkeyword as the search becomes more refined.

-The user chooses another keyword, narrowing the list of matching articles further, each time.

-Not only does EBSCOhost give users a good deal of choice, there are also a variety of helpful features!
