Mississippi State University Libraries has chosen EBSCO Discovery Service™ (EDS) from EBSCO Publishing as its discovery tool. The university library was looking to bring all of its resources together under a single search box. EBSCO Discovery Service creates a unified, customized index of an institution's information resources, and an easy, yet powerful means of accessing all of that content from a single search box—searching made even more powerful because of the quality of metadata and depth and breadth of coverage. The EBSCO Discovery Service searches most of the MSU Libraries' major databases as well as the online catalog. Other databases will be added in the near future.
EBSCO Discovery Service offers:
Much deeper & wider indexing than any other discovery solution – In addition to the most comprehensive and robust collection of metadata from the best content sources, EDS also provides full indexing for EBSCOhost databases and other partner databases including Alexander Street Press, LexisNexis, NewsBank, Readex and more.
Everything the researcher needs in one place – By leveraging the fast and familiar EBSCOhost platform, EDS offers a single interface for discovery of a library's entire collection and the powerful features to heighten the research experience.
Full-text searching – EDS offers access to metadata for full-text content, which in turn will yield the most accurate search results.
Fast, simple access to all of the library’s full-text content (electronic and print) – EDS offers a truly integrated one-stop search experience for all of a library's Journals, Magazines, Books, Special Collections, OPAC and more.
