IPSWICH, Mass. — February 25, 2014 — The eScholarship collection from California Digital Library is now searchable via EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS) from EBSCO Information Services. EBSCO Discovery Service users may search the full text of more than 30,000 publications from eScholarship's robust collection. EBSCO continues to add a variety of sources to EDS providing users with the most comprehensive collection of content.
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".
California Digital Library 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, Nature Publishing, IEEE, ACM and thousands of others. Partners also include content providers, such as LexisNexis, Thomson Reuters (Web of Science), JSTOR, ARTstor, Credo Reference, Encyclopedia Britannica, World Book, ABC-CLIO, The Hathi Trust and many others.
EBSCO Discovery Service brings together the most comprehensive collection of content—including superior indexing from top subject indexes, high-end full text and the entire library collection—all within an unparalleled full-featured, customizable discovery layer experience.
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.
