(Carlsbad, CA – July 5, 2006) World-class library automation provider EOS International has added Moss Landing Marine Laboratory to its growing list of special libraries using EOS.Web Enterprise and the new EOS.Web Federated Searching Module.
"EOS.Web has definitely streamlined the workflow in this small research library. Moving between cataloging, circulation, serials management and reports is now a seamless transition," states Joan Parker, Library Director at Moss Landing. "The federated searching component has quickly become very popular with scientists and students. Since switching to EOS, users have definitely found it easier to navigate through the library's print and digital resources."
The EOS.Web Federated Searching Module eliminates the need for staff and end users having to search, one at a time, dozens of databases, each of which have their own unique search interface. With EOS.Web Federated Searching, from within the EOS.Web OPAC, users can select any set of database sources to search, whether it be internal, the Web, Z39.50, commercial or free. Results are displayed in the EOS.Web OPAC according to source, and with a single click, the entire record is displayed in the native database interface.
"EOS is thrilled to offer clients the new Federated Searching Module. This module is easy to use and streamlines the search process, saving time and headaches for users and staff. By searching multiple databases at once you can easily see all the possible results and reference only those that are relevant to your needs," states Jeffrey Goodwin, Director of Research and Development.
