EBSCO Publishing is pleased to announce plans to update the EBSCOhost interface in the summer of 2008. Since the last EBSCOhost major interface redesign in 2002, there have been many technological advancements, many of which we will incorporate into EBSCOhost 2.0. We are pleased to provide you with an early preview of the key features of EBSCOhost 2.0.
Some of the key updates will include:
- A cleaner, simpler user interface
- Related Images readily available beside the Result List
- Results directly from NewsBank
- Instant article previews from mouse-over action
- Expand/Collapse side panels
- Search history displayed above Result list
- SmartText Searching to provide full results from partial Find field terms
- Multi-database access to Authority files
- URLs that can be bookmarked
- A convenient, streamlined Cite process for all citation styles
We have also created an EBSCOhost 2.0 Flash overview, available here, and additional detailed information that describes all of the above features, here.
