EBSCO Discontinuing Searchasaurus and Kids Search Interfaces

As a result of EBSCO discontinuing the Searchasaurus and Kids Search interfaces on July 1, those interfaces will no longer be available in POWER Library.  While these interfaces were replaced in June 2015 by Explora, EBSCO’s new interfaces, EBSCO allowed the Searchasaurus and Kids Search interfaces to remain available through the 2015-2016 school year.

***IMPORTANT*** Beginning July 1, access to Searchasaurus and Kids Search will cease through EBSCOhost and via direct links utilized by libraries to provide remote access to those interfaces.   If your library makes direct links to either of these interfaces available from your library website, those links will be broken beginning on July 1.

Please note that Searchasaurus and Kids Search were removed from the list of POWER Library e-resources on the POWER Library Portal in June 2015, so there will be no changes to the “List all” or “Help me choose” lists available on the POWER Library Portal.

If you have any questions, please contact HSLC Support.

Thank you, HSLC Support support@hslc.org
