EBSCO Down, Try These Alternatives

UPDATE: as of 10pm on March 27, 2012, the EBSCO databases are working again.

The library’s EBSCO databases (e.g., Academic Search Complete, PsycINFO, CINAHL, America: History & Life, and many others) are down due to server issues at EBSCO. This is affecting libraries nationwide. In the meantime, try these alternatives:

JSTOR – scholarly articles covering many different topic areas
LexiNexis – newspaper articles
ABI/INFORM – business information
PubMed – medical information

If you have questions, call the Library at 920-465-2540, or chat with us online.
