EBSCO stands for Elton B. Stephens Company.  Yes, we love google, too, but this is a filtered database that will save you time.


EBSCO host is a collection of journal, magazine, and newspaper articles that our students can access in their full text.  This database also contains primary sources such as maps and photographs.  One neat tool in EBSCO is that it cites the information in MLA format if needed.
