What’s EBSCO? Why do we talk about it so much?

The EBSCO databases are a collection of databases available to all OU-Tulsa students. The librarians often recommend them because the EBSCO databases are fairly easy to use, and because they offer useful features that make your searching more fruitful. Furthermore, EBSCO is a collection of databases, not a single database, so you can choose from many subject-specific databases for your search, as well as some general academic databases that come in handy when you’re not quite sure where to start searching.

There are different sets of EBSCO databases for health sciences and Norman-based students, so be sure to look at the databases page on the library website to go to the EBSCO that’s right for you. You’ll be able to access these databases both on campus and from your home or work computer, once you log in. Many of these databases offer the full text of articles, but of course you already know that you can order any article that doesn’t come with full text from the library’s interlibrary loan service.

Questions? Ask the librarians!
