The EBSCOhost iPhone/Android app makes a large number of the Library subscription journals available on your iPhone/iPad or Android phone/tablet. You can search in a similar fashion as the web version of EBSCOhost, read full-text articles and email articles to yourself or others.

Installing the EBSCOhost app

To set up the app you will first have to log into EBSCOhost using a desktop computer at

http://search.ebscohost.com/ (Click on the 'Athens Login' link)

This will require your Athens login (Signup Link if you need one).

Choose a Database to search, we recommend "Medline with Full Text".

Try only using one to start with as the app will be quicker with only one database to search. Advanced users can choose other databases such as "CINAHL with full text". At the bottom of the page you will now see this link

Click on it and fill out the pop up box using the email address that you currently use with your iPhone, iPad or Android device, and instructions to download and authenticate the app will be sent to you. Please note that merely downloading the app from the app store will not be enough, you will also need to click the link in the email using your device to authenticate the app.

If you would like to learn how to search using the app, you can access the EBSCOhost Help (Mobile Browser compatible) pages.

If you are having problems, please contact the Library or visit us and a staff member will be happy to assist you.
