Q. How do I access EBSCOhost?

Step by step instructions for finding EBSCOhost.


EBSCOhost is the user interface for all of the research databases provided by the company called Ebsco. It is not a stand-alone search tool or library database. Rather, you use it to search many research databases at once.

  • Need scholarly/peer-reviewed journals? We suggest Ebsco's Academic Search Premier. It uses the EBSCOhost platform.
  • Need all types of sources? We suggest our "Search Everything" tool, which also uses the EBSCOhost platform. There is a search box on the Library's web page and a direct link on the navigation menu.

To find and use EBSCOhost Web:

  1. Access EBSCOhost Web from the the Library's Research Databases A to Z list.
  2. From off campus, you will need to log in with your NWACC username and password.
  3. Once logged on, choose from the many Ebsco databases available.

You do not need to sign in to EBSCOhost itself to use the platform and find results. You can create a free account if you want to save articles, but it is not necessary.
