EBSCO Databases: The good news and the bad news

**Final Update:  MEDLINE with Full Text has just been restored.

**3rd Update:  All should be fixed by Wednesday morning, Dec. 2, according to EBSCO.

**2nd Update:  All have been restored except MEDLINE with Full Text, which hopefully will be soon.

**Update:  We still haven’t received an estimated “fix” time from EBSCO.  In the meantime, we recommend the following alternatives to the databases that have temporarily disappeared:

For America History & Life and Historical Abstracts, use World History Collection.

For MEDLINE with Full Text, use MEDLINE.

For PsycINFO, use Psychology & Behavioral Sciences Collection.

We’ll update this when we know more.

*********************************************************

Welcome back!  We have a couple of updates on our EBSCOhost Databases.

First, the bad news…Some of our EBSCOhost Databases have been unavailable since at least this past Friday due to an updating error by EBSCO.  These include America History & Life, Historical Abstracts, and PsycINFO.  GALILEO is working with EBSCO to fix this as soon as possible.

And the good news is that EBSCO is now offering its databases for your mobile devices!  You’ll find this listed in GALILEO  as “EBSCOhost Mobile Academic.”  Details below:
