explora_poster.inddSome of you may have already heard the news about Explora, EBSCO’s new interface for schools and public libraries. Explora is available now because EBSCO worked with ODL to add it to your account. If you have problems, call Ebsco support at 1-800-758-5995. If you haven’t set up your access to Ebsco yet, fill out this form and an Ebsco representative will contact you to complete the process. Be sure to state that you want remote access in the comments field.

Explora will take the place of Ebsco’s children’s interfaces- Searchasaurus, Kids Search, and Student Research Center, which will retire in January 2016. Please contact us if you have any questions about Explora or the retirement of Searchasaurus, Kids Search, and Student Research Center.
