The information center contains tutorials and learning aids for subscribing searchers.
It is recommended that everyone become familiar with the information center offerings before moving on to searches.
Begin a Simple Search to Initiate Transfer
2. Enter an initial search word or phrase in the search bar located in the EBP Subscriber homepage.
This is a simple search feature. Hitting the enter key or selecting the Search button activates the transfer to the Sigma Discovery Service.
Searchers will be allowed to customize the search in step 3.
Customize the Search in the Ebsco Database
3. Search results are displayed in the Ebsco One Search database system called the Sigma Discovery Service.
The service searches across multiple databases at one time (i.e., One Search).
Subscribers may create an Ebsco account to organize, store, and customize their searches. This is a separate account maintained by Ebsco. It is not associated with Sigma.
