EBSCO available on your Mobile

EBSCOhost databases have millions of magazine, newspaper, and journal articles available for you and your students.   They also added tens of thousands of ebooks this year, all available on your computer.  Now EBSCOhost is available on your iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad and your Android mobile devices with the new EBSCOhost app.  Once you download the software, you can “check out” an online book and have it available on several of your devices at the same time!

The EBSCO app does not run through the Ivy Tech proxy server, so you’ll need a separate ID and Password to use it.  Just contact the library, and we’ll be happy to provide that information to Ivy Tech faculty, staff, and students.  For more information about the EBSCO app, click here.  For more information about downloading books to your mobile phone, iPad, Nook, etc., click here.
