EBSCO Discovery Service Will Fully Integrate EBSCO A-to-Z and LinkSource

From EBSCO:

EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS) is set to benefit from the formal merging of EBSCO A-to-Z and LinkSource into EBSCO’s overall discovery solution. The two resources will become an integrated part of EBSCO Discovery Service. The EDS technology and service teams will work to provide additional value for EDS customers via a seamless integration of the services with EBSCO Discovery Service.

While EDS is currently able to leverage the EBSCO A-to-Z knowledgebase to facilitate quality linking and limiting for a customer’s holdings, regardless of which resource listing product a customer subscribes to, this change will allow EDS customers to gain unique functionality in EDS. Complete browsing of a library’s e-resources will be possible within the same experience in which users conduct their keyword discovery searches. EBSCO A-to-Z and EDS customers will also reap the benefits of a unified administrative tool (under EBSCOadmin) that will allow for streamlined management process for all products.
