EBSCO Discovery Service creates a unified, customized index of an institution’s information resources, and provides access via a single search box. Metadata is harvested from both internal (library) and external (vendors) sources creating a pre-indexed service of unprecedented size and speed. The service is indexed directly on EBSCO servers allowing for exceptionally fast search response times. Users are also able to leverage the familiar powerful features of the EBSCOhost® user experience. EDS provides everything the researcher needs in one place—a single interface for discovery of a library’s entire collection and powerful features that heighten the research experience.
EBSCO Discovery Service provides much deeper indexing than any other discovery solution, as well as access to all of the library’s full-text content (both electronic and print resources)—an integrated one-stop search experience for a library’s journals, magazines, books, special collections, OPAC and more.
In addition to the most comprehensive and robust collection of metadata from the best content sources, EDS also provides full indexing from EBSCOhost database subscriptions, as well as many non-EBSCOhost partners, including: NewsBank, Readex, LexisNexis, Alexander Street Press and more. Superior relationships & licenses with academic publishers make EDS the most comprehensive service for searching the complete full text of journal articles and other sources. Nearly every major academic publisher is included in EDS.
