Mobile Access

ebsco mobileEBSCOhostnow automatically displays a mobile version of the site when you are on a smartphone, so you don't even need to add a separate app.
The mobile interface allows you to search and read results as well as gives full access to search options and MyEBSCOhost folder items. There’s also an easy way to switch between the mobile-optimized site and the full featured site.

Get the App

You can download a separate app if you choose to. An iOS version of the EBSCOhost App is available as a free download from iTunes: EBSCOhost App on iTunes

For Android devices, the EBSCOhost App is available as a free download from the Play Store: EBSCOhost App for Android

Authenticate the App
After installing the app on your device, it must be authenticated from the EBSCOhost or EBSCO Discovery Service interface.

To authenticate the EBSCOhost app:

  1. Log into EBSCOhost.
  2. Click the EBSCOhost iPhone and Android Applications link at the bottom of the page and enter an email address which you can access from your device.
    An email with an authentication key is sent to you.
  3. Access the email from your device and click the link found in the email to authenticate the application.
    You have 24 hours to access the key from your device to authenticate the app. If the key is not used within 24 hours, it expires and you will need a new key.

Note: The iPhone and Android applications currently do not support the eBooks and Audiobooks on EBSCOhost databases.
