December 14, 2010 – Metadata from ECONIS will soon be searchable through EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS) from EBSCO Publishing. ECONIS is one of the world’s largest databases dedicated to economics. It’s the online catalog of the German National Library of Economics—Leibniz Information Centre for Economics, the world’s largest library for economics.

Benzinga is the source of this information and article, “German National Library of Economics and EBSCO Publishing Agree to Include ECONIS Content in EBSCO Discovery Service.” ECONIS contains more than five million titles. The online catalog includes records for business studies, economics and practice-oriented economics literature and includes title records for books and journals, working papers, dissertations, statistics and much more.

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. The EDS Base Index is comprised of metadata from the world’s foremost information providers.
