April 13, 2011 – A recent agreement between EBSCO Publishing (EBSCO) and World Book will bring twelve popular reference tools into EBSCO Discovery Service™ (EDS). Metadata will be added to the EDS Base Index; this metadata will allow the World Book content to better impact searching through the EDS single search interface. The twelve World Book resources that will be searchable in EDS include popular English language titles as well as French and Spanish language reference tools.

American Banking & Marketing News brought this to our attention in their post, “Content from World Book Searchable Through EBSCO Discovery Service™.” EBSCO continues to be the choice of libraries to create a unified, customized index of an institution’s information resources. This access to the metadata makes the quality of the search even more powerful.
