Explora and Dissertations and Encyclopedia Britannica, oh my!

BadgerLink has been busy this spring!

With three interfaces designed especially for different age groups, Explora offers topical browsing and traditional searching to help users find full-text articles, images, videos, encyclopedia entries, and much more. Using the same great EBSCO databases you've come to trust, Explora promises a more enjoyable experience no matter your information need.

Don't forget! The Explora interfaces are replacing Kids Search, Searchasaurus, and Student Research Center - these will no longer be available after June 30, 2015. 

EBSCO's American Doctoral Dissertations, 1933-1955 includes nearly 100,000 dissertations from 1933 through 1955, and is a full image copy of the original print index Doctoral Dissertations Accepted by American Universities. The content in this database represents the only comprehensive record of dissertations accepted by U.S. universities during that period of time. 

Britannica School - available through BadgerLink
Britannica School - not just articles!
