Credo Integrates Topic Pages With EBSCO Discovery Service

Credo announced that it has deployed new technology that integrates its growing library of Topic Pages with EBSCO Discovery Service. Students who search EDS will now see Topic Pages, which provide a gateway through Credo’s trusted multimedia-rich reference content to other library resources, alongside their search results, providing a highly targeted starting point for deeper research. These searches will also retrieve Credo full-text reference entries, and they will soon include high-resolution images and videos.

Michael Gorrell, EBSCO executive vice president and chief information officer, says as a provider of discovery services for libraries EBSCO is always working to improve the end-user experience. “By leveraging this new technology from Credo we are able to offer a new reference layer that sets the context for information discovery and make further use of existing library resources within the discovery environment. This agreement expands upon our partnership with Credo to further address the research needs of libraries and the end user.”

Credo’s new technology is available at no cost to libraries that subscribe to both Credo and EBSCO Discovery Service.
