Ebscohost offers an app for accessing from your iPhone and iPad.  The free app is available for download from the iTunes app store. After downloading the EBSCOhost app, it must be authenticated.

To authenticate the EBSCOhost app:

1.   Access the EBSCOhost databases as you normally would through the MC Library database page at

2.   Click the EBSCOhost iPhone and Android Applications link at the bottom of any EBSCOhost page to email yourself the download instructions and authentication key.

3.   Once you are e-mailed the download instructions, you must touch the authentication key link through your device to complete the process. You have 24 hours to access the authentication key through your device to authenticate the app.
