Searching Multiple Databases at the Same Time

ZipSearch allows you to search multiple databases across several platforms at the same time.  ZipSearch includes:

  • Journal, Newspaper, and Magazine Articles
  • Books at UA
  • Books in OhioLINK
  • Streaming Video & Audio
  • Book Reviews

The EbscoHost Platform also allows for a multi-database search, but only for databases available on the Ebsco platform.  Next to the database title (above the search boxes) select the "Choose Databases" link to select the databases you would like to search at the same time.  Try searching these databases:

  • Academic Search Complete
  • APA PsychInfo
  • MEDLINE with Full Text
  • Social Work Abstracts
  • SocIndex with Full Text
  • Sociological Collection
  • Psychology and Behavioral Sciences Collection

KEEP IN MIND: When you search multiple databases you lose any specialized limiters.
