EbscoHost Databases: Subject Areas of Interest

While many patrons know how to search the EBSCOHost-licensed databases (especially Academic Search Complete), there are subject-specific databases available for many disciplines. Many of these databases will hold information useful for other related areas (an article found in PsycINFO or SocIndex concerning personality may be used in a paper for political science, for example).

Note:  Academic Search Complete is not included in the following pages' lists; it is the most-used and most general in scope.

Another Useful EBSCO Service

While not provided in the large list of databases, EBSCOHost also provides access to Points of View Reference Center, a separate database that gives overviews, multiple viewpoints and research starters about current events or debate topics.
