IPSWICH, Mass. — January 10, 2017 — EBSCO Information Services (EBSCO) has been awarded Bronze in the 2016 Brandon Hall Group Awards for Best Advance in Performance Support Technology.

EDS also provides managers with ample leadership and management resources as well as authoritative articles from peer-reviewed journals.

EBSCO Vice President of SaaS Strategy Tamir Borensztajn says the award supports the effectiveness of EBSCO Discovery Service to accelerate research. “EDS takes research to the next level through a perfect combination of content and technology, and helps users find and access the highest-quality content for the best-possible research experience.”
