Q. What is the difference between EBSCO Discovery Service and EBSCOhost?

Answer

EBSCO Discovery Service is a search tool that searches most of the library's individual databases and SpartaCat, the library catalog, at one time. 

Using this tool with the Full-Text search limiter applied searches almost 'everything' we have access to, either in our physical collections or digitally through our subscriptions, regardless of publisher or provider. 

EBSCOhost is one collection of databases the library subscribes to. 

When using this tool, you will need to choose which specific EBSCO content and collections you want to search in. Some will be selected by default for you. It does not search our databases by other providers (Gale, ProQuest, JSTOR, InfoBase for example) the way EBSCO Discovery Service does.
