Archimed, a leading software and library solution vendor in the EU, has established a partnership with EBSCO Information Services (EBSCO) to enrich the content searchable with Syracuse, its newly-released unified information system portal for libraries.
To best serve the diverse needs of their users, university libraries must make their collections easily available at anytime to patrons, this includes providing seamless access to all resources, such as print collections, e-collections, online digital resources, and other valuable third-party content.
To meet this need, an information portal must act as a "discovery tool," presenting a single entry point for users to search not only their institutions' local and vendor catalogs, but also to all external resources subscribed to by the library through a content provider. To satisfy these emerging demands, Archimed sought to partner with EBSCO, provider of the leading discovery service to libraries of all sizes worldwide: EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS).
EDS creates a unified, customized index of library's information resources, and offers an easy, yet powerful means of accessing all of that content from a single search box — searching made even more powerful by the quality of its relevance and value ranking technology.
Eric Délot, Archimed Marketing and Sales Director, remarked that "EBSCO's high speed Discovery service combined with the strength of Syracuse, a complete information system for librarians, provides access to a robust and unique search solution."
Archimed has been a software and library solution vendor for more than 20 years, and is headquartered in Lille in northern France, right at the heart of the European Union. An independent actor on an international scale, Archimed is undergoing full expansion, having generated turnover of more than 9 million euros in 2014. Backed by its expertise, Archimed now boasts several hundred clients, tens of thousands of daily users and millions of documents managed by its solutions.
