EBSCO Discovery Service chosen for Stockholm University

Share this on social media:

Sweden's Stockholm University has selected EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS) as its new custom discovery solution.

The library said that it wanted to provide more innovative services to its students and that EDS provided the single interface the library was looking for and the abilty to navigate searches through a native interface and an API.  

Anders Söderbäck, head of publishing and e-resource management at Stockholm University, said: 'We felt that EDS provides the flexibility as well as stability that we were looking for to help our library achieve our goals.'

EDS API offers easy integration (with systems and for programmers), provides comprehensive documentation and support, and its straight-forward technology allows libraries to create a unique user interface experience.

Söderbäck says easy integration was also an important factor when choosing a discovery service: 'It was crucial to find a service with a good API as well as a short implementation period and EDS API was a perfect fit.'   

By integrating critical components of EDS API into Stockholm’s library solution via EDS API, the students at Stockholm benefit from leading content and features including rich metadata, relevancy ranking, full-text linking, access to critical subject indexes, persistent links, custom links, facets, limiters and other features.
