the Most from EbscoHost
The South Jersey Regional Library Cooperative
is pleased to facilitate and join with the New Jersey State Library in
subsidizing your Library's access to the online service EBSCOhost from
July 1, 2003 to June 30, 2004.
This page explains how to access any
of the EBSCO databases your library ordered through SJRLC. You'll also
find instructions for using EBSCOadmin, which allows you to customize your
account and generate statistics.
EBSCOHOST Access Instructions
Using WEB interface based on IP address
or User Name and Password.
- If you have already provided this information
to us, simply proceed to the address: http://search.ebscohost.com
- Registered IP users will be automatically
- If you are prompted for a User Name
and Password, or if you want to set up IP authenticated access, please call the SJRLC office.
EBSCO also provides various other methods
of authentication. One of the benefits of your EBSCOhost subscription
is the ability to offer remote access to your EBSCOhost account.
Users will be able to access EBSCOhost from home, work, or anywhere
a computer and the web are accessible. Please contact EBSCO Publishing's
Technical Support Department to set up any of the methods of authentication
URL Referral Method:
may be utilized by libraries already authenticating users. You will need
a script on your web page that requires a user to log in with the library’s
web server before entering EBSCOhost and other paid services. Once
logged into your system, the user is granted access to EBSCOhost.
(Library Barcode) Custom Patron ID Filtering
Accommodates libraries utilizing many patron ID’s or Library card numbers.
CPID uses library bar codes numbers (or other numeral identification) and
set prefixes to authenticate patrons.
Customer Coordinated Authentication
(Patron Files) : If a customer would like multiple user id (patron
id's) and passwords then they can utilize Customer Coordinated Authentication.
If you would like to use patron ids and passwords supplied by you, as opposed
to the ones assigned by EP, you can view and change the list of patron
ids and passwords within EBSCO admin.
If your library shares an IP address range or proxy server with other
libraries, you can create a URL that will target your library's account
directly. Use this address, but supply
your library's user id and password as indicated:
- Creating a Desktop Shortcut:
you get to the EBSCOHOST screen, you can create a desktop icon using Windows. Click
on the right-hand mouse button, then click on CREATE SHORTCUT, then fill in the
Description (the label you want to use on the icon) and fill in the URL you used
to get to the search screen.
