Our EBSCO Integrated Knowledge Base serves as the foundation of the discovery solution ensuring the data about your e-journals, eBooks and collections are shared among multiple products such as Full Text Finder (EBSCO’s A-to-Z listing service and Link Resolver), Usage Consolidation, ERM-E and our Holdings Management tool. To ensure EBSCO has the most up-to-date information, please send title list information on a regular basis.
Both the Discovery Service and the Knowledge Base are part of the EBSCO Discovery Solution, but different types of data are required. EDS typically needs more granular data and the Knowledge Base only requires title level information.
Please submit a separate file for each collection, or an all-inclusive list with a column for filtering by collection.
For eBook collections, we will accept ‘change files’ that include only titles added, titles removed, and updates to existing titles. For journal and database collections, a file containing all available titles is preferred.
Please notify us if you have any of the following changes: new title, title removed from site, additional backfile content added, a new collection available.
Please send updates as often as changes are made to your content (monthly, quarterly, annually, etc).
