EBSCOhost Mobile can now be accessed without any initial administrative profile set up or software download required. EBSCOhost Mobile’s new smart technology auto-detects when an EBSCOhost user is visiting from a mobile device. The platform automatically directs the user to the optimal search experience for their device, making login and access faster and more streamlined. In the case of iPads, users will be directed to the EBSCOhost full site, which has been optimized for iPad use.

The new EBSCOhost Mobile allows libraries to customize the interface with their own brands, colors, and logos, and to benefit from patron analytics provided with enhanced, device-specific usage reporting. For EDS users, EBSCOhost Mobile provides guest access and real-time availability checking for items in the library catalog.
