IPSWICH, Mass. —September 25, 2011 — A recent agreement between EBSCO Publishing (EBSCO) and Oxford University Press, Inc. (OUP) allows Grove Music Online to be searchable via EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS). Grove Music Online from OUP is one of the leading online resources for music research. This latest addition further expands the vast collection of music content available via EDS.

Covering all aspects of music, Grove Music Online offers more than 50,000 subject articles and biographies contributed by over 6,000 scholars from around the world. Grove Music Online also includes more than 500 audible music examples, annual contemporary composers update, composer work lists and timelines as well as topical guides to be used as study tools for teachers and students.

Grove Music Online adds to the growing collection of music resources available via EDS. Additional music resources available to mutual customers include Naxos Music Library, The Music Index, RILM, RIPM, RISM, and Index to Printed Music.

Oxford University Press in Oxford, England (OUP UK), and is the oldest and largest continuously operating university press in the world. EBSCO has worked with OUP to also make other resources available in EDS including: Oxford Scholarship Online, Handbooks Online and Reference Online.

OUP is part of a growing list of publishers and other content partners that are taking part in EDS to bring more visibility to their content. Partners include the world's largest scholarly journal & book publishers including Elsevier, Wiley Blackwell, Springer Science & Business Media, Taylor & Francis Informa, Sage Publications, and thousands of others. Partners also include content providers, such as LexisNexis, Thomson Reuters (Web of Science), JSTOR, ARTstor, Credo Reference, World Book, ABC-CLIO, and many others.

The EDS Base Index represents content from approximately 20,000 providers (and growing) in addition to metadata from another 70,000 book publishers, representing far more content providers and publishers than any other discovery service.

EBSCO Discovery Service creates a unified, customized index of an institution's information resources, and an easy, yet powerful means of accessing all of that content from a single search box—searching made even more powerful because of the quality of metadata and depth and breadth of coverage.

EBSCO Discovery Service is quickly becoming the discovery selection for many libraries (www.ebscohost.com/discovery/eds-news), and an obvious partner for content providers. Because the service builds on the foundation provided by the EBSCOhost platform, libraries gain a full user experience for discovering their collections/OPAC—which is not typical in the discovery space. Further still, in the many universities and other libraries where EBSCOhost is the most-used platform for premium research, users are not asked to change their pathways or habits for searching. There's simply more to discover on the familiar EBSCOhost platform, and the same can be said for library administrators who can leverage their previous work with EBSCOadmin.
