EBSCO Publishing and NewsBank Form Integrated Search Partnership

Bookmark and Share

EBSCO Publishing and NewsBank have announced an agreement forming an integrated search partnership. Customers subscribing to databases from EBSCOhost and NewsBank will be able to easily link to NewsBank results using the EBSCOhost interface based on the agreement between the two companies. Through integrated search technology imbedded in EBSCOhost, mutual subscribers will be able to access results from NewsBank after launching a search in EBSCOhost. The service is free to mutual customers of both EBSCOhost and NewsBank full-text news databases.

 

A new link on the EBSCOhost interface allows users to go directly to their NewsBank results based on the EBSCOhost search. When a user enters search terms into the EBSCOhost interface, a link to relevant full-text results will appear in the result list — putting the NewsBank resources a click away.

  

The EBSCOhost search platform is used as a research interface in libraries around the world. This agreement allows mutual customers to search the EBSCOhost interface to find NewsBank results and then access them in the NewsBank interface.
