EBSCO eBooks, Advanced Search Update and More

 In Mackin

EBSCO eBooks Coming Soon – Mackin will soon be prepared to offer a wide variety of EBSCO eBooks to broaden our selection. These titles are hosted on the EBSCO Host platform, much like Capstone Interactive or Lerner Interactive titles are publisher hosted. EBSCO eBooks are available in three license types:  Single User, Multi User and 3 User (the equivalent of purchasing 3 copies of a single user title for a slight discount.)

Preview Button – On search results and list details, the preview button has been relocated from the Title area to just under the title image. The Preview button is also available on the Full Record page.

Advanced Search – This page has been completely restyled to bring it up-to-date. In addition, the layout is responsive to tablets and smaller screens.


Notice that new search filters have been added to the digital section of the form to allow users to narrow their searches by platform and interactive eBook products as Arbordale Interactive or Lerner Interactive. Please Note:  to include all the interactive products in your search, click “All Interactive.”

Registration Page Restyled – The same new style that was applied to the Advanced Search form has been applied to the Mackin Registration page. Furthermore, new registrants will be required to accept the Mackin Terms and Conditions.


Secret Question Required – If a customer has never set a secret question and answer, they will be required to do so when they receive a password reset link from Mackin Customer Service. This is another system security measure we must enforce.
