Product & promotional material

If you’re looking for print-quality logos and other promotional materials for you to take and use for your own library’s outreach and community-focused marketing activity, here’s a convenient link to EBSCO’s pages of Logos and Promotional Kits.

EBSCO Database Buttons & Example URLs

You can access the full listing of EBSCO database buttons (small, medium, large) directly from the EBSCO site. Why use buttons? Because there are a number of ways to link your library patrons directly to specific databases and interfaces subscribed to by your library. Want more information on how to set up direct links to EBSCO databases? Click this link. Also, if you’d like to provide links to EBSCOhost-interface databases in languages other than English, click this link to find out how.

If you need help constructing some of those direct links, drop an email to Kira Zimmerman ( or check out our Great examples for how to link to EBSCO databases – or – contact EBSCO Tech Support.

Looking for a handy table of database and profile codes? Use these in the construction of your own URLs. As you can see from examples provided by EBSCO’s “How do I set up direct links to EBSCO databases,” these codes can be valuable. Note: some of the databases in Colorado’s package are offered WITHIN the EBSCOhost interface, and some of the databases have their own interfaces. You also can check out our Great examples for how to link to EBSCO databases.
