New Explora Database

For many students, writing a research paper can be a challenge, especially if they are unsure of which topic to select. Explora™, EBSCO's engaging interface for schools and public libraries, aims to simplify the research process by enabling students to search across all of your library’s EBSCO databases at once using a single search box. Students can also browse content in Explora by category to get research ideas. In addition, Topic Overviews provide students with the background information they need to begin their research.

Since Searchasaurus™, Kids Search™ and Student Research Center™ will be discontinued soon, we encourage you to try Explora. Here are some of the reasons why.
