EBSCOhost Research Databases available through the Madison Area Technical College Libraries include: Academic Search, Alt Healthwatch, Associates Programs Source Plus, Business Source, CINAHL, Greenfile, Education databases, History Resource Center, Science Resource Center, Masterfile, PsychArticles, Literary Reference Center, and many more.
A persistent link or permalink can be created to a particular article or publication in EBSCOhost databases. Anyone who uses an article link must have access to the database from which the URL came. Therefore, off-campus users must be authenticated as part of Madison Area Technical College through EZproxy. Off-campus users who click on a Madison College EZproxy permalink will be prompted to enter their username and password. EBSCO permalinks tend to be reliable and relatively short, making them easy to work with.
