We receive 26 databases through EBSCOhost. The one you most likely will start
will be MagillOnLiterature. To get there, look at the image below--you would
click on the
very first link.
This is the next screen you'll see. You'll scroll down to click on the
link to MagillOnLiterature Plus to search in that
Next, you would need to enter your search term(s)in the search box below.
I'll use "Raisin in the Sun" as example for the search.
You can deal with each article individually (in other words, print and cite one
at a time)or you can put
the articles you are considering into a folder and
print/cite them all at once.This folder carries over from a
search in one of
Ebsco's databases to searches in others of Ebsco's databases. You do that
by clicking on the "add to folder" phrase right
pdf or html information.
Just as an example, let's say I added three of the articles in the list to my folder.
You can view your folder by clicking Folder view under the yellow bar to
the right, or in the blue ribbon on the top right. Here's a look at the folder I
picked for A Raisin in the Sun"
When you're ready to print, don't use the browser print! Make sure you
printer icon to print. This is important because when you
go through the Ebsco print commands, you'll
get to the page below that
gives you the option to choose the MLA Citation style:
Then you'll get the screen that gives you the prints of all the articles
that were in HTML format, and you
also get the MLA citations for all
of the selected articles:
Notice that there are 35 pages that will print.
Of course, if you're doing all this and have a word document open
at the same time, you can copy and paste the
citations into your Works
Cited page. You do need to make sure you double space them.
