MasterFILE Premier contains PDF backfiles* (as far back as 1922) for key publications including American Libraries, Foreign Affairs, History Today, Library Journal, National Review, Saturday Evening Post and more.

EBSCOhost Provides an Easy-to-use Interface with Powerful Search Functionality

Library patrons can easily search and retrieve content contained in MasterFILE Premier via EBSCOhost  which provides users with an intuitive interface that allows basic and advanced search options. Users can conduct a basic search by typing in a keyword in the single search box, or they can conduct a more advanced search using limiters and other options.


My overall impression of the EBSCOhost interface is that it offers something for everybody.
