The Ebsco Discovery Service Experience at PC

Ebsco Discovery Service is coming soon! Julie Kliever and Janice Schuster from Providence College have been in it from the start, as PC was selected as a beta site. Come and get a high level overview of their EDS experience and what it might be like when EDS takes the place of Serials Solutions in your library. Janice and Julie will be discussing:

  • What is EncoreDuet vs. HELIN OneSearch vs. Ebsco EDS?
  • What was it like to be the beta location?
  • How is EDS working for PC now that the Fall semester has started?

Note: This session is an overview and will serve as an introduction. Separate EDS training for hospital libraries is in the planning stages. Feel free to ask general questions. Very specific questions about functionality and how EDS will work in your library are more appropriate for the training session.
