EBSCO Publishing Strengthens Discovery Service, Releases EBSCOhost Integrated Search

Jul 14, 2009

EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS) grows as additional partners sign on to provide libraries with a single entry point for research and launch users into the entire array of a library’s collection. EDS will harvest metadata from internal and external sources, creating a centralized pre-indexed service of unprecedented size and speed. EBSCO Discovery Service will allow for “local” access to the metadata associated with EBSCO Publishing’s databases, e-journals from more than 400 publishers, and additional resources from other partners. EBSCO Publishing is introducing EBSCOhost Integrated Search (EHIS). EHIS is able to simultaneously search EBSCOhost databases along with all other electronic resources, including OPACs, publisher packages, as well as resources from other database aggregators.
