Where Oh Where Has Academic Search Premier Gone?

If you're one of the many Mississippians who uses MAGNOLIA, you may have noticed that Academic Search Premier, the most-used database, has gone missing. Fear not! We still have access to it! I have no explanation for why it's no longer listed, BUT I do have information on how to access it.

When you're looking at the A-Z list, feeling sad that your friend Academic Search Premier is gone, click on another database instead. It needs to be one of the standard EBSCO titles, so choose anything that's not Credo, Worldcat, Literary Reference Center, or Consumer Health Complete. I've been scrolling down to MasterFILE Complete, since it is very similar to Academic Search.

Once you're in, click on "Choose Databases." A list will pop up of other databases to add to your search. From here, you can select Academic Search Premier and, if you wish, deselect the one you chose in the beginning.

A little roundabout, yes, but hopefully soon this issue will be fixed.

If you have any questions, MAGNOLIA-related or not, please let us know!
