EBSCO Publishing and ABC-CLIO Announce New Partnership

Posted Aug 24, 2006
Bookmark and Share

EBSCO Publishing (EBSCO) and ABC-CLIO have announced a partnership to benefit mutual customers of EBSCO's and ABC-CLIO's online databases. Users of ABC-CLIO's Historical Abstracts and America: History and Life databases can now link directly from relevant journal article citations in those resources to the corresponding full text in EBSCO's online databases via EBSCOhost.

With this partnership, customers of EBSCOhost full-text databases and ABC-CLIO indexes will not need a link resolver to access full text from databases such as Academic Search through indexes such as Historical Abstracts. There will be no additional charge for this new feature.

In addition to producing many research databases (including many with full text), EBSCO provides access to other resources from additional database providers. In other cases, where the leading online index is not available via the EBSCOhost platform (such as ABC-CLIO's Historical Abstracts), EBSCO strives to make its full-text content readily available to users of that index that are also EBSCOhost customers through a simple and direct link. In addition to the ABC-CLIO databases, EBSCO also offers such linking for Chemical Abstracts and Zynx Health's suite of evidence-based clinical decision support tools.
