EbscoHost Searching Interface Changed

This week, the Libraries changed EbscoHost searching interface to Basic option with one simple box to type in your searching string/strategy.

The intent is to emulate the Google-like searching experience for many students and the default results list is now ordered by relevancy. (Previously, the results were listed by date). If you already learned how to manage your search by combining various keywords using "And" or "Or" operators, the Advanced Search option is a click away as indicated in the red arrow.

If you wish to change how you list your search results, just pull down the menu and select the option that would fit your browsing activities.
