New EBSCOhost Features

We are pleased to announce that the following new EBSCOhost features are now available:

Enhanced PDF Viewer:

EBSCOhost features a special viewer designed to streamline the browsing of an entire issue, or all available volumes and issues, from one screen. There are also several helpful features to enable users to easily navigate and manage open PDFs, including:

  • TOC column with instant access to citations with title, author and subject detail
  • Hyperlinked access to full text issue contents, by article or chapter titles
  • A convenient list of hyperlinked thumbnails to illustrations
  • Expand/collapse arrow to control open PDF view

To view a short demonstration of this new feature, click here. (Or, if your email is set on Plain Text and negates the link, copy and paste this URL into your browser: http://www.ebscohost.com/special/movies/pdfViewer/ThePDFViewerInEBSCOhost.htm)

Three Additional User Interface Languages

We have added Dutch, Romanian and Slovenian to the existing, substantial list of languages into which users can instantly translate the user interface screens in EBSCOhost, (enabled by the library administrator).

Subjects on Result List Items

Due to customer feedback, individual records within the EBSCOhost Result List now display subject headings for all applicable databases and libraries. This feature is defaulted on for academic and medical communities. Others can enable the feature via EBSCOadmin.

Please visit EBSCO’s Support Site to learn about all of EBSCO’s products, search among thousands of FAQs, or download Flash tutorials, Help Sheets or User Guides, or communicate with Technical Support at any time, using the EBSCO Online Support Form. You can also try out new features, such as Text-to-speech, and read about what’s coming soon to EBSCOhost by visiting the New Features page in EBSCOhost.
