The Chrome browser from Google may be growing in popularity, but many vendors still only support the old standbys: Internet Explorer & Firefox (with some Safari).

EBSCOHost databases, for example, do not support Chrome. You can read their thoughts here. Basically, the .pdfs will not open up in the EBSCO built-in .pdf reader.

Rather than trying dubious work-arounds to get Chrome to work with EBSCOhost databases, please just use IE or Firefox.

Looking around in “Academic Search Complete” or some other EbscoHOST database and suddenly need the help of a Librarian? Well, now you can get it.

At the search result level within EbscoHOST databases (or at the article level, if you are browsing a journal), an AskAway box will pop up on the right.

Don’t know what “AskAway” is? Read about it here.
