Most, if not all library databases, incorporate responsive design into their websites, allowing them to detect the type of device you're using and display the content optimally.  So, whether you're searching from a tablet, smart phone or computer, you can simply point your browser to the database of your choice, and start searching. 

A few databases offer mobile apps that you can install on your device: 

  • EBSCOhost:  EBSCO houses many of our article databases, along with thousands of ebooks. The free app will work with iOS or Android devices. To e-mail a link that will allow you to install and authenticate the app on your phone, first enter EBSCO via the link on the library's website (see the "Articles & Databases" page). Once in EBSCO, look at the bottom of the screen (see a screenshot). When you've followed the simple instructions provided, you will be able to search APUS EBSCO subscriptions (including full text articles!) from your phone. Read more.
  • Ebook Central:  This very popular ebook provider recommends Adobe Digital Editions (for Android and iOS devices). Click here for download instructions.
