EBSCO has increased the number of databases that are included in its policy for metadata sharing and technology collaboration partnerships with discovery vendors. A new total of 179 EBSCO full-text databases, as well as all 74 EBSCO full-text historical digital archives and all 550,000+ EBSCO eBooks will be available. This interesting information was found on Digital Journal in their article, “EBSCO Makes 50 Additional Databases Available Through its Open Metadata Sharing & Technology Collaboration Policy.”
With any database project, it is important to remember the value of a solid taxonomy. How the content is classified impacts the findability of your data. Professionals should look for an experienced builder of solid standards-based taxonomies to associate content for appropriate machine-assisted indexing. Access Innovations can provide solutions that are ANSI compliant.
