EBSCO Publishing Extends Partnership With Accessible Archives Inc.

EBSCO Publishing has expanded its partnership with Accessible Archives, Inc. to include American County Histories to 1900: New England and The Civil War: Parts V and IV in EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS). The agreement allows metadata from these two resources to be added to the Base Index of EDS.

American County Histories to 1900: New England presents all the publications from New England counties revealing detailed information about history, geology, geography, government, family history, and many other subject areas related to the New England area. Additional county histories will be added throughout the year. The Civil War: Parts V and IV presents various aspects of the Civil War from an Iowa and Midwestern perspective.

Accessible Archives, Inc. is an electronic publisher of primary source full-text historical databases encompassing rich, comprehensive material found in leading historical periodicals, books, and newspapers. Accessible Archives content also provides unique historical elements reflecting broad views of American history and culture. Information includes eyewitness accounts of historical events, vivid descriptions of daily life, editorial observations, commerce as seen through advertisements, and genealogical records.

EBSCO Discovery Service users will have the ability to search the full text of Accessible Archives resources bringing an extended list of results alongside additional library resources. EDS creates a unified, customized index of an institution’s information resources, and an easy, yet powerful means of accessing all of that content from a single search box—searching made even more powerful because of the quality of metadata and depth and breadth of coverage. The EDS Base Index represents content from approximately 20,000 providers (and growing) in addition to metadata from another 70,000 book publishers.
