now available)
EBSCOhost Integrated Search takes federated searching to a new level. 
Research shows that many customers who are using federated search
products are unhappy with four essential components * Search Quality,
Search Speed, Customer Service and Cost. Because the recently enhanced
EBSCOhost interface is the essence of EBSCOhost Integrated Search, it
leverages the same easy-to-use EBSCOhost features and functionality that
users know and have come to rely on. 
Like federated search engines, EBSCOhost Integrated Search allows users
to simultaneously search EBSCO databases as well as all other electronic
resources, including those from other database aggregators, OPACs, and
publisher packages. However, unlike federated search products, true
integration is possible with EBSCOhost Integrated Search as libraries
can now apply the powerful EBSCOhost search experience to all of their
other electronic information resources. EBSCOhost features that are
available for any database, from any vendor, include: EBSCOhost Basic
and Advanced Search Screen Functionality Subject clustering Publication
clustering Sorting results by Relevancy or Date Date Slider limiter Add
to Folders option Use of Custom Links Fast response times, allowing
results to trickle in without delaying the user In addition, through
EBSCOadmin, librarians can now set up any databases from any vendor,
customize the user experience for external databases, generate usage
reports from external databases, add labels of databases for unfamiliar
end users and more.  See you there,Jim,  James W. Oliver
