New online library resource for trial: EBSCO

EBSCO free trial for Central Philippine University

The Henry Luce III Library has comprehensive online resources for the CPU community for research and study. Aside from having an extensive collection of books to supplement teaching and learning, having online resources that users can access 24/7 and outside the library is also a priority.

We have a new database for trial: EBSCO, which provides a variety of research databases and other information resources to libraries and other institutions. Their databases cover a wide range of subjects, including academic journals, magazines, newspapers, and other publications. They offer a variety of other resources such as e-books, audiobooks, and primary source materials.

This trial will be available for a limited time until February 15, 2023 only (Note as of February 2023: trial access has been extended until March 15, 2023). We hope you find this new trial database to be helpful and informative. Let us know if you have any feedback by emailing us at
