Supports school curriculum
Middle Search Plus contains primary source documents including Essential Documents in American History, reference books such as the Funk & Wagnalls New World Encyclopedia, the Encyclopedia of Animals, and more than 1.2 million relevant photos, maps, and flags.
All full-text articles are assigned reading level indicators (Lexiles) that provide educators with an estimate of the result’s reading difficulty and the approximate grade-level reading ability required for comprehension. Lexiles help teachers meet the needs of students with varying reading abilities and interests and allow students to read along at their own pace.
Middle Search Plus is available via EBSCOhost or Explora, EBSCO's dedicated interface for schools and public libraries.
Advanced Search, with its elegantly laid-out tool set for crafting very precise search strategies, gives the user great control over the whole search process.– Library Journal, June 2010
