he Student Research Center provides students in secondary education with the most appropriate research tools for easily obtaining the information that they seek from their EBSCO databases.

Through the Student Research Center, users can easily pre-determine which content sources (e.g., Magazines, Newspapers, Biographies, Country Reports, Film & Video) will be included with their search. They can also search their databases by topic heading, make use of an online dictionary and encyclopedia, explore the top searches of the day, and even limit their search according to appropriate Lexile reading levels.

Some databases may include Lexile reading levels in article citations. The Lexile level assigned to a result provides educators with an estimate of the reading difficulty of the result, and the approximate grade level reading ability required for comprehension. The grade level does not necessarily reflect a student’s actual grade.
