ExploraOG

For many students, writing a research paper can be a challenge, especially if they are unsure of which topic to select. Explora™, EBSCO’s engaging interface for schools and public libraries, aims to simplify the research process by enabling students to search across all of your library’s EBSCO databases at once using a single search box. Students can also browse content in Explora by category to get research ideas.
