The EBSCOhost 2.0 interface launched last week.  I got to see a preview of it at the PLA Conference in Minneapolis in March;  it has some very nice features, and I have been looking forward to actually getting to use it.  Sarah Houghton-Jan, The Librarian in Black, blogged about it Monday, EBSCO 2.0:

EBSCO 2.0, the new interface and feature-rich interface to EBSCO products, launched last week.  Having seen some demos myself, I must admit to being very impressed.  It's easier to use than the old interface, doesn't look so "1995," and has some of the features users have been asking for for a long time.  The Krafty Librarian has a review and the EBSCO site has some useful FAQs if you're looking for a tour or some basic information.

 Staff can sign up for training opportunity happening in the Tech Lab August 12th, with a representative from EBSCO conducting the training.  Todd sent us email about that.  Check the TechLab page on the staff intranet for more information.

Probably be a good idea to advertise some of the "NEW & IMPROVED" Ebsco databases on the homepage.
