EBSCOhost Now Compatible with AGent

EBSCO Publishing and Auto-Graphics, Inc. ( have announced a partnership that allows users of the Auto-Graphics AGent system to tap into a library's EBSCOhost resources. Auto-Graphics is a supplier of library automation software and electronic publishing solutions.

Not to be confused with commercial linking servers, AGent is a tool that allows librarians to simultaneously search multiple databases and other resources (as subscribed to by the library). It creates a single entry point to library resources and automatically validates a researcher for access to these materials. This system enables users to launch a search across databases and other reference resources, yet view results in their native result screen and format, thus ensuring copyright compliance. Researchers using AGent would retrieve results from EBSCOhost databases—complete with EBSCOhost native navigation tools, display pages, etc.—while still within the realm of the AGent system. In addition, AGent supports a variety of delivery formats, including EBSCOhost Z39.50 MARC, SUTRS, and its native format.
