IPSWICH, Mass. — May 14, 2015 — EBSCO Information Services (EBSCO) and ILS vendor, Data Management PA, announce a new partnership to provide expanded services to mutual customers. The partnership will enable mutual customers of EBSCO Discovery Services™ (EDS) and Data Management PA to access content that is important to them while customizing the discovery experience to their needs.
Data Management PA develops and sells ILS Sebina and Web2.0 OPAC SebinaYOU. Based in Italy, Data Management PA is a national brand leader for all types of libraries and is active in France in collaboration with Décalog, a leading French software house for public libraries.
Donato Todisco, CEO of Data Management PA says “We are currently engaged in an ambitious R&D process in which open data and open technologies play a key role. This important agreement with EBSCO will enable the addition of EDS services to our Web2.0 OPAC. We’re looking forward to creating fluid and transparent interfaces to these services for our academic customers.”
By partnering with some of the most popular ILS vendors, EBSCO gives libraries ultimate choice when it comes to how they serve their patrons. With the option of using either EBSCO Discovery Service or a library’s current catalog user interface as the front end, EBSCO’s ILS partnerships allow libraries to take advantage of the benefits of both services. Through these partnerships mutual customers will get better, easier access to the databases, journals, conference proceedings, magazines, newspapers, e-books, images, videos and other resources their libraries provide.
