New EBSCO Discovery Service Overview and Step-by-Step Implementation Guide

EBSCO Discovery Service Integration Overview

The main purpose of the EDS integration is to enhance the user experience for EDS users bringing the power of LibKey Linking into EDS and to promote journal engagement through the use of View Complete Issue links. Additionally, all integrations include cover images from the BrowZine API to provide a cohesive experience between EDS and BrowZine as well as include Retracted Article designations when appropriate. Select that link to learn more about the retraction via LibKey.

Integration Location

As shown in the screenshot above, all integrations are visible from the “Access now” drop-down that appears beneath each article result. If available, the LibKey Instant PDF and View Complete Issue will appear.
