Google Drive and Chrome Web Store Apps Coming in Late June

This comes from the EBSCO newsletter.  Many of the Nebraska Access databases are EBSCO products.  This is something to make things easier for those patrons using our databases.

 

EBSCO is committed to providing you with innovative resources to engage your students in learning, both inside and outside the classroom. Last year, we introduced Google Classroom to help educators easily share EBSCO content with students. With the number of G Suite Apps for Education users now at 70 million worldwide, we are pleased to be taking the next steps toward achieving Google for Education Partnership status with the late-June release of Google Drive integration and Chrome Web Apps.

 

  • A Google Drive icon will appear at the top of the Tools menu on Detailed Record and Full Text screens in EBSCOhost®, EBSCO Discovery Service™ and Explora™ by June 30. This functionality will allow users to save EBSCO content, such as PDFs and images, directly to their personal Google Drive cloud storage.
  • Chrome-optimized apps for EBSCOhost, EBSCO Discovery Service and Explora will be available for download via the Chrome Web Store by June 30. Because they’re hosted on the web, these apps are easy to install, always up-to-date, and can be synched across multiple devices.
