On April 2, 2015, a number of enhancements will be released to GVRL (including Twayne’s Authors Online, Scribner Writers Online and Genealogy Connect) and all resources within the InfoTrac and In Context families, including the PowerSearch platform.
These enhancements are designed to:
Increase accessibility for those with disabilities like low vision or blindness
- Improve usability for both desktop and mobile researchers
- Create a common user experience across some of our most popular resources
These changes are primarily aesthetic in nature and will not affect the features and functionality of the resources.
Infographic explains the value of these changes to libraries and end-users.

EBSCO is committed to serving the needs of the library community, and their latest endeavor is no different. EBSCO is launching a site to help the community stay informed about what is taking place in the rapidly evolving and increasingly complex world of libraries — the EBSCOpost blog.
You can start reading the blog at www.ebsco.com/blog. EBSCOpost will be highlighting the latest EBSCO developments and resources, but it will also be a place to hear the perspectives of some of the dedicated EBSCO employees, partners and customers on library news, trends, issues, advancements and technological innovations.
