“Ask-A-Librarian” feature in EBSCO databases

A great way to get assistance with a EBSCO database search is to hit the “Ask-A-Librarian” link at the top right of the screen.

Just submit the form with your name, email address and a description of what you hope to find.  The form is sent to the Reference Desk (reference@georgefox.edu), where a librarian will evaluate it and respond.

The most valuable aspect of the form is that your search history is automatically included with the email.¬† This allows the librarian to track which databases you’ve searched, including the terms used and fields (title, subject, author, etc.) that you specified.

Not only is the Ask-A-Librarian feature very convenient, inclusion of the search history  will help you get more precise assistance from the library than you might otherwise.
