October 18, 2010 – EBSCO Publishing and the American Psychological Association (APA) will bring metadata for three APA resources to the EDS Base Index, allowing the rich APA content to better impact searching through the EDS single search interface.

We found this news on Behaviorial Health Central in their article, “Content from Three American Psychological Association (APA) Resources Searchable Through EBSCO Discovery Service.” APA joins a long list of publishers and other content partners taking part to bring more visibility to their content. EDS customers and their end users benefit as more of a library’s collection becomes available.

Linda Beebe, APA senior director of PsycINFO, says the agreement with EBSCO helps APA fulfill part of its mission to provide information.

“We want to disseminate psychological science to the broadest array of researchers. Adding our metadata to EBSCO Discovery Service will help us increase the usage of APA content and provide the valuable information found in PsycBOOKS, PsycARTICLES and PsycCRITIQUES to users beginning their searches in EDS.”
