EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS) 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. The ability to create these custom solutions is achieved by harvesting metadata from both internal (library) and external (database vendors) sources, and creating a pre-indexed service of unprecedented size and speed. Although the resulting collection is massive in size and scope, the fact that it is indexed directly on the EBSCOhost servers allows for exceptionally fast search response times, and the ability to leverage the familiar powerful features of the EBSCOhost user experience - across all resources. 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 - Not only does EDS search the most inclusive set of metadata, but superior relationships & licenses with academic publishers make EDS the most comprehensive service for searching the complete full text of journal articles and other sources. 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 http://www.ebscohost.com/discovery.
