Abstract: Full-text market intelligence reports from Mintel, the provider of world-leading market intelligence, will be searchable via EBSCO Information Services’s robust and comprehensive discovery service, EBSCO Discovery Service.

IPSWICH, Mass. — June 6, 2013 — Full-text market intelligence reports from Mintel, the provider of world-leading market intelligence, will be searchable via EBSCO Information Services's (EBSCO) robust and comprehensive discovery service, EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS). The agreement between EBSCO and Mintel will allow metadata for Mintel Reports to be added to EDS.

This agreement between EBSCO and Mintel enables more than 600 yearly reports covering the US, UK, Europe and International consumer markets to be searchable in EBSCO Discovery Service. The Mintel Reports provide daily updates on the hottest issues affecting key consumer markets and the economy with a focus on consumer packaged goods/fast moving consumer goods, financial services, media, retail, leisure and industrial space.

Mintel's daily news articles on corporate, product and advertising activity are written by Mintel experts. Critical analysis and recommendations include coverage in the following areas:

  • Consumer Attitudes to Products and Spending
  • Market Size Research Reports
  • Industry Analysis
  • Market sizes, forecasts and shares
  • Company Profiles
  • Competitive Intelligence
  • Trend Analysis
  • Market Segmentation
  • Daily updated news

Mintel is part of a growing list of publishers and other content partners that are taking part in EDS to bring more visibility to their content. Partners include the world's largest scholarly journal & book publishers including Elsevier, Wiley Blackwell, Springer Science & Business Media, Taylor & Francis Informa, Sage Publications, and thousands of others. Partners also include content providers, such as Gale, LexisNexis, Thomson Reuters (Web of Science), JSTOR, ARTstor, Credo Reference, World Book, ABC-CLIO, and many others.

EBSCO Discovery Service 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—searching made even more powerful because of the quality of metadata and depth and breadth of coverage.

EBSCO Discovery Service is quickly becoming the discovery selection for many libraries (www.ebscohost.com/discovery/eds-news), and an obvious partner for content providers. Because the service builds on the foundation provided by the EBSCOhost platform, libraries gain a full user experience for discovering their collections/OPAC—which is not typical in the discovery space. Further still, in the many universities and other libraries where EBSCOhost is the most-used platform for premium research, users are not asked to change their pathways or habits for searching. There's simply more to discover on the familiar EBSCOhost platform, and the same can be said for library administrators who can leverage their previous work with EBSCOadmin.
