EBSCOhost Announces New Content Viewer

Jan 06, 2009


In 2009 EBSCO Publishing (EBSCO) will release three historical digital archive collections that require new ways to view digitized content and a new EBSCOhost Content Viewer that will enable researchers to navigate this new historical content. The universal browser-based delivery system provides a visual overview of the document being searched. If searchers are using keywords, the keywords are highlighted on the page images. Users are able to see how many times a given keyword is mentioned in a periodical, monograph, article, or one of the other document types in the databases on a Document Map. For periodical content, the EBSCOhost Content Viewer lets users browse multiple issues in a volume without having to leave the page viewer interface. The viewer uses zooming and panning technology similar to searching online maps. The technology also allows users to jump to the next section of an article via hyperlinks. Other features include persistent links, saving articles or pages to folders, and printing and saving user-selected articles or pages as text-searchable.
