Connect Patrons to All Your Library Resources

Your library is about more than just books. EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS) is a cost-effective search tool that connects patrons to all of your e-resources, including databases, e-books and magazines through a single search box. EDS enables your patrons to quickly and easily…

  • Find unbiased facts on today’s news
  • Research health concerns 
  • Make wiser shopping decisions 
  • Learn about hobbies and sports 
  • Know everything about their next travel destination 
  • Research company information to find jobs 
  • Repair small engines 

EDS was the way for us to highlight the content that we already have – buried treasure that people didn’t know they had access to.
