New York, NY -- November 4, 2015. ACI Information Group's research database, the ACI Scholarly Blog Index, has been added to EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS). In partnership with EBSCO Information Services, researchers at libraries that have implemented EDS can now discover scholarly blogs in their search results with direct links to the ACI Scholarly Blog Index website to review authors' credentials and social media footprints.
"With the integration of the ACI Scholarly Blog Index into EDS, students, faculty, and librarians at institutions that use the EDS platform will be able to easily find relevant, credentialed blog content for their academic research needs," explains ACI Information Group President Larry Schwartz. "The purpose of EBSCO Discovery Service is to enhance the discoverability of research content. The ACI Scholarly Blog Index supports that purpose by offering not only authoritative content but also comprehensive metadata, which improves discoverability."
EBSCO Information Services is the leading discovery service provider for libraries in the world with more than 8,000 discovery customers in over 100 countries. The EBSCO Discovery Service platform provides each institution with a comprehensive single search box for EBSCO's entire collection, including historical archives, hundreds of databases, and more. Through the ACI and EBSCO partnership, the ACI Scholarly Blog Index is now one of those databases.
"For years, EBSCO has worked to change the way resources are searched in order to help users access the highest quality content for the best research experience," says Schwartz. "The ACI Scholarly Blog Index is a perfect complement. It gives researchers access to timely insights from top scholars that can be difficult to find. By integrating the ACI Scholarly Blog Index into EDS, student, librarian, and faculty researchers will find this content directly in their search results, which will significantly improve their research experiences."
