Government Printing Office Partners With EBSCO

Dec 01, 2010

The U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO) is making its metadata searchable through EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS), a product from EBSCO Publishing. Subscribers to EDS will be able to search for federal records from the GPO's Catalog of U.S. Government Publications. GPO works that will be available include the Congressional Serial Set Catalog, GPO Access Publications, and Internet Publications.

GPO joins a number of publishers working with EDS, including the British Library, Baker & Taylor, and Readex. At present, the EDS Base Index represents content from approximately 20,000 providers in addition to metadata from another 70,000 book publishers.
