How do I download the EBSCOhost application for iPhone or Android Devices?


The EBSCOhost app for iPhone/iPod touch/iPad and Android Devices is available for download from the iTunes app store and Google Play. After downloading the app, it must be authenticated from the EBSCOhost or EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS) interface.

To authenticate the EBSCOhost app:

  1. Log into EBSCOhost.

  2. Click the EBSCOhost iPhone and Android Applications link at the bottom of the page and enter your email address.

    Note: You must use an email address that you can access from your device.

    An email with an authentication key is sent to you.

  3. Access the email from your device and click the link found in the email to authenticate the application.

    You have 24 hours to access the key from your device to authenticate the app. If the key is not used within 24 hours, it expires and you will need a new key.
