EBSCO Databases & RefWorks Are Now Customized to Accommodate Your Cell Phone or PDA

As more and more people start using their iPhones, BlackBerrys and other mobile devices to search the Internet, many Web services are customizing their interfaces to accommodate them. EBSCOhost and RefWorks are no exception.

The EBSCOhost databases you have learned to depend on for your research are now also available via ESBCOhost Mobile. EBSCOhost Mobile offers many of the same features as the non-mobile version of EBSCOhost but the interface has been optimized for use on a mobile device with a smaller screen. Your device must have javascript enabled in order to use EBSCOhost Mobile and users of BlackBerry devices require special instructions.

Similarly, RefMobile allows you access to your RefWorks account. When logging in to RefMobile, you will need to use the subscriber code that was supplied to you via email after you registered for your individual account. If you no longer have that code, please call Reference Services at (216) 687-5300.Go to Working with RefMobile for more details.

The Michael Schwartz Library is happy to provide these new services for mobile devices, and, for your convenience, have created one place where you can link to them and other such services as they become available. We have expanded our "Off-Campus Access" page to "Off-Campus Access & Mobile Devices." A link to this page appears in the green navigation bar at the right of all Michael Schwartz Library Web pages.
