In addition, Ralston High School offers Ebscohost FirstSearch via NebraskaAccess. Considered the most-used reference resource around the world. EBSCOhost FirstSearch includes ERIC, the Education Resource Information Center. ERIC provides access to education literature and resources. The database provides access to information from journals included in the Current Index of Journals in Education and Resources in Education Index. This resource contains more than a million records and links to hundreds of thousands of full-text documents from ERIC back to 1966.
Both Pro-Quest and EBSCOhost FirstSearch provide a secure place to store and search results, and offer time-saving results management tools such as Search Alerts, Journal Alerts, and RSS Feed Alerts.
