WebFeat Express Integrates with EBSCO A-to-Z

EBSCO (http://www.ebsco.com) and WebFeat (http://www.webfeat.org) announced a partnership that allows the federated search engine WebFeat Express to be sold as an add-on product to EBSCO's online title listing service EBSCO A-to-Z. WebFeat Express is a streamlined version of the original WebFeat engine that integrates within the A-to-Z service. With A-to-Z, administration is greatly simplified, and changes to the library's electronic collection are reflected in real time and may be indicated and maintained through this single interface.

WebFeat Express is designed to appeal to the budgets and administrative demands of small to medium-sized libraries. It allows clients to handle federated search configuration with minimal effort using WebFeat's admin module. Once configured, the federated search engine integrates within the A-to-Z service, allowing it to take advantage of the extensive A-to-Z knowledgebase.

EBSCO's A-to-Z service (http://www.ebsco.com/atoz) provides library patrons with a single, comprehensive online list of titles to which they have access. Users can search for journals by keyword, or they can browse an alphabetical list by title or subject. The master A-to-Z title database provides link and coverage information to more than 99,000 unique titles from more than 900 database and e-journal packages. All major database vendors and publishers are represented. A library's print titles can also be included.
