EBSCOhost Integrated Search (Coming Soon - Demo 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:

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.
