Discovery Layer Project
• Why?
• What?
A-to-Z and LinkSource
OLINKS Migration
When? (Project Timeline)
Slide 3
Why? Silos of information not easily discoverable
library catalog
A&I databases
Slide 4
Search, discover, refine
Library catalog
A&I databases
Slide 5
What? Discovery Layer
Research is more thorough
Research conducted more quickly
End user FINDS sources
Items that library paid for get more use, increasing ROI
Slide 6
Purpose of Each EBSCO Resource
• EDS search multiple fields down to the article/item level
for your entire collection, including your library catalog, in
the familiar EBSCOhost platform
• A-to-Z a searchable, title-level list of all your database,
e-journal package, and individual e-journal content
• LinkSource serves as a seamless OpenURL connector
between online services where the user is searching for
an item and the full text is found elsewhere in your
collection; use LinkSource to link to your ILL forms
Slide 7
