Looking for Ebsco databases?

Kia ora searchers,
We've adjusted our journal databases links slightly to (hopefully) make things easier. Under "Find journal articles" there is a new link to "Communication databases" - this will allow you to search a range of Ebsco databases at the same time (such as Academic search premier, Business source premier, Communication and mass media complete, SocIndex with fulltext). To search other Ebsco databases (eg the health ones), go to the alphabetical list of databases and click on EbscoHost.

We hope this makes things easier for you - but let us know by posting a comment to this blog.
