EBSCO Publishing (EBSCO) and Innovate Interfaces, Inc. (Innovative) are partnering to develop improved access into EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS) via Innovative's Encore discovery platform. The result of the partnership is a smarter experience for mutual customers and library users who begin their search from Encore, according to the announcement. EDS will be available via a dedicated API with enhanced functionality.
Encore Synergy's Services Oriented Architecture seamlessly integrates powerful discovery services like EDS into the user experience without the limitations and trade-offs of ‘one size fits all' systems. With libraries facing an increasingly complex world of content and technology, it's a Web imperative that discovery systems interoperate and scale collaboratively to ensure that libraries have the freedom to choose best-of-breed functionality for their users, the announcement states.
