Small Engine Repair Reference Center

Small Engine Repair Reference Center™ is the definitive online tool for small engine repair assistance, including: ATVs, commercial mowers, farm tractors, generators, motorcycles, marine (boats), outdoor power equipment, PWC (personal watercraft/jet ski), snowblowers, snowmobiles, tillers and other small engines. This comprehensive resource contains 410 reference books in full text with original photos and illustrations that guide the user through every job.

The database often contains more than 25 years of an engine model, and offers assistance in providing routine maintenance, such as tune-ups and brake service, as well as extensive repairs involving engine and transmission disassembly. Also, the database allows users to select a type of product, specific brand, specific model/engine type, and specific area of that model/engine type. Additionally, model numbers are also searchable.

Mobile Access

EBSCO have just released EBSCOohost Mobile 2.0. This new Mobile 2.0 platform provides seamless access to your EBSCOhost databases on mobile devices without having to create or maintain a separate Mobile specific link. Using mobile detection technology, EBSCOhost now recognizes if the user is coming from a mobile device or a desktop/laptop computer.

Users can access the new mobile version by simply logging into your EBSCOhost databases as if they were using a computer. This is now active and does not require any setup.

Here is a link on our support site that describes some of the features of our new Mobile platform:
