Access EBSCOhost databases on your mobile device

EBSCOhost databases are mobile-responsive for easy searching. Installing the app is not required. Using the app may provide a better research experience if you plan to research primarily from a tablet.

1. Access any EBSCOhost database from the library website on your tablet. When researching from an Android phone or iPhone, the mobile site is recommended over the app.

2. Click the link at the bottom of any EBSCOhost page about the iPhone and Android Apps to email yourself the download instructions, access key, and a link to the iTunes app store or Google Play.
 
Note: You must access the link in Step 2 of these instructions from your iOS or Android device or cut and paste the link into a browser window on the device. The activation link will expire in 24 hours.
 
3. Follow the instructions in the email you receive. The email will come from ephost@epnet.com
