Discontinutation of EBSCO's Text-Only Interface Coming

With the success of last summer's EBSCOhost 2.0 fully ADA compliant release, you now have an excellent alternative to the EBSCOhost Text Only interface, which will be fully retired in the spring of 2009. For more information and user reviews of EBSCO's 508 Accessibility, please visit this site.

If you use the Text Only interface for accessing EBSCOhost via a handheld device, you will find EBSCOhost 2.0 equally effective. A brand new product for accessing EBSCOhost using handheld devices is currently in development and targeted for release in the spring.

For those who continue to use the Text Only interface to minimize connectivity speed issues based on your local network providers, EBSCOhost 2.0 provides a superior alternative to Text Only.

Please change your links and start using EBSCOhost 2.0 now, to give your users time to become accustomed to its streamlined design and features before Text Only's discontinuance, and to take advantage of all that EBSCOhost 2.0 has to offer. For assistance, please see this FAQ, or contact Technical Support at any time, using the EBSCO Support Form (http://support.ebscohost.com/contact/askus.php).
