Essential Research Apps for your iPad : Ebscohost

MBS Library Service would like to extend a warm welcome to the MBA Class of 2013.

By now you should have started to explore your iPad and the many features it offers. The exciting thing about a new PC Tablet is discovering its capabilities and learning what works well and what its key strengths really are. Now that you’ve begun the process of settling into the School, and as part of our commitment to supporting you with all your research needs, over the coming weeks we’ll be recommending some useful business research apps for you to download to your iPads, some of which are for accessing our databases and some which are for useful external sources.

To start with we’ll be featuring the EBSCOhost app. EBSCOhost databases are the most-used, premium online information resources for tens of thousands on institutions worldwide. This free app ensures that iPad uers get the most from searching premium EBSCOhost database content like Business Source Premier, the only provider of full text access to the Harvard Business Review.

EBSCO’s new app is free, and offers the convenience and rich functionality that enables users to:

  • Choose which databases to search
  • Limit Results to full text or peer reviewed
  • Sort by relevance or date
  • Retrieve full text results in HTML and/or PDF formats
  • Save results for offline access at a later date
  • Email results to self or others
  • View cover flow display of results

First download the free app from the App store. Next step is to select E-Resources on the Library Web-site, then click on Electronic Journals, and choose Business Source Premier (EBSCO).

To get started, simply click on the EBSCOhost iPhone/iPod touch Application link at the bottom of the EBSCOhost screen and follow the instructions. An email will be forwarded to you enabling you to authenticate your status as an MBS Library user. After this you’re free to search and take advantage of this innovative free new app. Learn more about EBSCOhost  Mobile and the new iPhone app at:


A guide to Business Source Premier is also available on the Library Web-site outlining the key features of the database
