GALILEO: Access to Explora (EBSCO): Partially Restored, Some Issues Remain
Posted March 1, 2023 5:08 pm
Dear GALILEO Community Members with EBSCO Explora Databases (K-12, GPLS, Some academics):
GALILEO Support Services has restored access to the Explora suite of databases.
Explora users may now search, access, read, save, and print content, however, users will continue to experience some diminished functionality primarily related to sharing and saving content and using personal accounts.

Workarounds, for searching—Limit GALILEO Classic Search Results to Specific Databases
All of the Explora content may be surfaced in the main GALILEO Classic or Bento search.

Explora for Public Libraries
Explora Middle School
Explora High School
Note that there are filters and facets on the sidebar in the GALILEO Classic Search where you may limit search results to specific databases:
