Ohrstrom Library purchases a variety of research content from longtime library vendor, EbscoHost, including a suite of digital journals, magazines & newspapers and a collection of over 112,000 eBooks.
To search these collections while on-the-go, consider the Ebsco App for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch (iOS 3 or higher).
To download the app, first create a free account with Ebsco using the link in the upper-righthand corner of any Ebsco product.
After creating this account, the bottom of the Ebsco page contains a link referring to their available apps.
Clicking this link will prompt one to enter the email address associated with the newly created Ebsco account. After completing this email prompt, Ebsco will send an email containing the following:
