How do I access EBSCOhost from home and how do I search for articles and eBooks

Learn how to access EBSCOhost 


EBSCO has journal, magazine, and newspaper articles and eBooks.

Kish students and staff should access library resources at the Library's website.

  • Go to the section "Looking for library resources."
  • Access EBSCO directly using the "list of online databases" which is an A-Z list of databases. You can choose individual EBSCO databases from the A-Z database list such as Academic Search Complete, Business Source Elite, GreenFILE, CINAHL, Health Source Nursing Academic, etc.
  • If you go to the E section of the A-Z Database Guide, you can select to search all of the EBSCO databases at one time by linking to the "EBSCOhost Combined Search of All EBSCO Databases."  
  • If you are off campus or not authenticated, you will be prompted to log in with your Kish credentials on a Kish College Login Screen. Type your full Kish email address as your username, then enter your Kish password. If you get a generic password box where you can login using Google, scroll down within that box and click on "Access Through your Institution" and select Kishwaukee College.
