EBSCOhost Databases Deliver News and Full-Text Blog Content from Newstex

Mar 23, 2007

EBSCO Publishing (EBSCO), a database aggregator, and Newstex, the Content On Demand company, has announced an alliance to deliver Newstex Content On Demand and Newstex Blogs On Demand via nearly 100 EBSCO databases to customers worldwide. As part of the distribution agreement, full-text blog content from Weblogs with historical archives in categories including art, career, economics, environment, finance, food, health, law, marketing, medical, technology, and more will be made available in online aggregated databases. Newstex licenses blog content directly from independent bloggers and then takes in each blog feed in text format and uses its NewsRouter technology to scan it in real-time. The resulting blog feeds, news feeds, and historical archives are delivered to EBSCO for distribution to customers in applicable databases.
