EBSCO Announces Caribbean Search Multidisciplinary Database

EBSCO Publishing introduced Caribbean Search, a new multidisciplinary database for academic, school, and public library users that provides a comprehensive guide to English-language articles pertinent to the countries and people of the Caribbean region. EBSCO says that Caribbean Search represents the largest full-text resource available to users in the Caribbean region with more than 730 Caribbean-focused scholarly journals, magazines, newspapers, reports, and reference books.

The database is updated weekly and available on the EBSCOhost platform. EBSCOhost is designed to enable alerting capabilities, information sharing, and easy keyword searching. A relevancy ranking feature ensures that users will find the most relevant articles in one result list.

EBSCO is dedicated to expanding its international coverage and has released a number of databases pertinent to other regions including: Fuente Academica Premier offering journals from Latin America, Portugal, and Spain, Australia and New Zealand Points of View Reference Centre, a database that provides information on current issues relevant to Australia and New Zealand, and Fonte Academica, a collection that offers scholarly journals from Brazil and Portugal.
