eScholarship is the open access publishing platform and searchable/browsable institutional repository used by University of California schools. It’s a service of the California Digital Library. Here are some recently added items to the eScholarship database. The keyword search box and link to advanced interface is located in the upper-right corner of the page.
Today, EBSCO announced that a collection of more than 30,000 items from the eScholarship database (about 1/2 of the total database as of today) can now be searched using EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS).
From Today’s EBSCO Announcement:
The eScholarship collection contains a variety of publications that will benefit EDS users looking for original scholarly works. eScholarship was first launched in 2002 as a means to disseminate scholarship created or sponsored by University of California faculty or divisions. The collection offers a robust alternative to traditional scholarly publishing channels and supports the digital publication and dissemination of UC research at all stages of the scholarly lifecycle including: journals, books, articles & working papers, conference proceedings, seminar/paper series and previously published articles or “postprints”.
Comment: We expect to see more and more institutional repositories sharing metadata and allowing their content to be search via all of the discovery services. Seems like a win for all parties bringing a more comprehensive search and greater exposure to the material.
