Product Descriptions

Libraries within BC ELN can maintain or grow the level of Academic Search and Business Source content they have historically accessed. EBSCO offers discounts and upgrade options at the institution level, provided BC ELN provides base content through the Common Suite. See product descriptions for summaries of the amount and quality of content provided within each database:

  • Academic Search Complete or Ultimate
  • Business Source Complete or Ultimate

UPDATE from EBSCO: by January 2018, Academic Search Ultimate is projected to have 3,949 full-text titles that are unique when comparing ASU to ASC. Additionally, Business Source Ultimate is projected to have 1,422 full-text titles that are unique when comparing BSU to BSC.

Academic Search

The Academic Search family of products from EBSCO is the most comprehensive multidisciplinary full-text set of databases available for research.

While not all college students have decided on a major, they all need to conduct scholarly research, and they all need fast, accurate and relevant results. That’s what they get with Academic Search.

With leading full-text journals covering subjects ranging from astronomy to zoology and everything in between, Academic Search provides students with the current information they seek.

In addition to scholarly journals, including those indexed in Web of Science and Scopus, Academic Search delivers video content from the Associated Press, conference proceedings, reports, monographs, and more to round out research.

The Business Source family of databases is the leading business research tool used by academic institutions around the world. The reason for that is simple – Business Source contains the most distinguished and influential business journals and magazines.

The database provides business students with up-to-date information on business news, trends and innovations to ensure that their research can prepare them for working in the business world and becoming tomorrow’s industry leaders.

Resources include company reports, business leader interviews, videos from the Associated Press, SWOT analyses, papers, conference proceedings and more.
