TexQuest Navigator and direct provider resource access reminders
This will allow you access to ALL TexQuest resources, including EBSCO.
Important: District Password Changes to EBSCO
As part of EBSCO's current username and password requirements, passwords must be updated every 365 days.
To make this annual update, for EBSCO only, easier for TexQuest participants, district EBSCO passwords will be changed between July 1 and July 15, 2020.
For most passwords,19! will be changed to 20! See EBSCO Access and Customization FAQs for detailed information on new passwords and how this will take place.
After July 15, 2020, new passwords will be emailed from TexQuest Support to district Primary, Librarian, and Technology contacts.
Summer 2019 Program Changes:
Emails from the TexQuest Support Center to participating district Primary, Librarian, and Technology contacts:
The TexQuest Refresh 2019 slide show will be updated with new information as it's received from our providers.
Effective June 15, 2019, Academic, Business, and History eBook Collections from EBSCO are optional, and must be enabled at the district or campus level. No action is necessary to continue accessing the K-8, High School, and Educator Collections.
If your district or campus would like to enable any or all of optional eBook collections:
Note: Campuses must have a customized EBSCO username and password to enable optional EBSCO eBook collection(s) at the campus level.
TexQuest Navigator is a portal that allows users to access all TexQuest resources with one log in, as well as narrow provider searches by content level and type.
Note: This alternate search method will be for district access only and cannot be customized for additional resources.
Funding for TexQuest is provided in part by a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services in combination with state and local funds.
