EBSCOhost now available as Android application

Ebscohost has just announced the launch of an Android application, in addition to its iPad/iPhone application.  To install, please follow the steps outlined below, they are identical for Android and the previously announced iPhone/iPad application (see post from May 2011).  Both Sections A and B below must be completed.

A. From a web browser on your computer or on your Android phone or tablet:

  1. Connect to the Ebscohost Mobile interface by clicking here : Ebscohost Mobile.
  2. Click the “Select/Deselect All” check box and click on “Continue”.
  3. Click the link “New: EBSCOhost iPhone and Android Applications”.
  4. Enter your e-mail address.  This must be the e-mail that you have configured in your device. In order for the Ebscohost authentication to work correctly, you must be able to click the links they provide in an e-mail from an eMail application on your device.  It will not work if you open your e-mail in a web browser!

B. From your Android phone or tablet:

  1. Open the e-mail sent to you by Ebscohost using your eMail application on your device and click the first link to install the application.
  2. Once the application is installed, click the second link in the e-mail. This will authenticate your installation with Ebscohost and allow you to have the same access as if you had connected to Ebscohost via the findit.lu portal.
