EBSCOhost Integrated Search (EHIS)
    Planned Release: May/June 2009
Taking federated searching
       to a new level

 Like federated search engines, any database from any vendor
       (and any OPAC) can be searched simultaneously
         However, unlike federated search products,
               true integration is possible
           Superior Breadth of Sources

• EBSCOhost Integrated Search was developed using a
  services oriented architecture that allows an unlimited
  number of sources to be included
• EBSCO is working with the leaders in federated search
  technology to be able to deliver the largest number of
  sources in the industry
         Superior Performance & Support

• EBSCOhost has:
    – Fully redundant and load balanced service delivery
    – Qualified and diligent support staff
• EBSCOhost Integrated Search will have:
    – A sophisticated AJAX display that allows results
      to trickle in without delaying the user
         • The slowest connectors will no longer frustrate
           end users
            Superior Ease of Use

• EBSCOhost is the world’s most widely used
  database research platform
• Integrating databases from other providers into
  EBSCOhost means
     – Usability studies were done to improve
       EBSCOhost and those enhancements will now
       benefit users of other services
     – More familiarity for staff and end users
     – Less training for staff and end users
     The features of EBSCOhost’s
   Basic Search are now available for
searching any database from any vendor
     The features of EBSCOhost’s
Advanced Search are now available for
searching any database from any vendor
        EBSCOhost’s
  Subject Clustering is now
available for non-EBSCOhost
        databases, too
       EBSCOhost’s
 Publication (a.k.a., Source)
 Clustering is now available
 for any database from any
vendor that identifies sources
Sort by Relevance or Date
Use EBSCOhost
 Folders for any
 database from
   any vendor
 The EBSCOhost Date Slider
  allows the user to refine by
date published for any content
      with dates identified
 The library can now
provide end users with
  labels of databases
Custom links may be
automatically included
     if desired
   EBSCOhost “Full Record”
functionality is now available for
  any database from any vendor
• EBSCOadmin can now be used to:
    – setup any databases from any vendor
    – customize the user experience for external databases
    – generate statistical reports from external databases
    – control subject area groupings of databases
    – add labels of databases for unfamiliar end users
EHIS can look like this...
   ...Or, EHIS
 can be accessed
directly via links
      from the
library’s website
 Attractive Pricing for
EBSCOhost Customers
   EBSCO doesn’t charge an extra fee to include
EBSCOhost databases in EBSCOhost Integrated Search,
      naturally reducing “connector” counts
                      Interaction between ESS and EP

• Database & Journal subscriptions completing each other
      – Databases as researching tool. Indexing, thesaurus, clustering, alerts
      – Journal subscriptions – add full text, go around embargos
• Customers perceive EBSCO as one supplier
• It is EBSCO’s competitive solution that we can offer integrated solutions of journal
  and database subscriptions.
• Interactions in content, interface, linking, support
