EBSCO Publishing and NewsBank Form Integrated Search Partnership

Aug 19, 2008

Customers subscribing to databases from EBSCOhost and NewsBank will be able to link to NewsBank results using the EBSCOhost interface based on an agreement between the two companies. Through integrated search technology imbedded in EBSCOhost, mutual subscribers will be able to access results from NewsBank after launching a search in EBSCOhost. The service is free to mutual customers of both EBSCOhost and NewsBank full-text news databases.

A new link on the EBSCOhost interface allows users to go directly to their NewsBank results based on the EBSCOhost search. When a user enters search terms into the EBSCOhost interface, a link to relevant full-text results will appear in the result list — putting the NewsBank resources a click away.
