Googlized EBSCO

If students would like to try a googlized version of EBSCO, they can

  1. Choose "SmartText Searching" under the green "Search Options". The default is "Boolean/Phrase";
  2. Then they can type in the enlarged search box "as much text for your search as you want - a phrase, a sentence, paragraph, or even whole pages";
  3. The number of results will be huge, but supposedly the first couple pages of the results should be most relevant as ranked by EBSCO's computer algorithm.
