Bridgeman Education Metadata Comes to EBSCO Discovery Service
EBSCO Publishing (EBSCO) and Bridgeman Education developed a new partnership allowing images from Bridgeman Education’s extensive collection to be searched within EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS). The agreement will add metadata from the Bridgeman Education collection into the Base Index of EDS.
Bridgeman Education is the online education resource of the Bridgeman Art Library, the world’s leading source of fine art, cultural and historical images. The collection, which is available by subscription to individuals or institutions, includes more than 390,000 high-quality images for teaching and learning.
The resources found in Bridgeman Education provide the visual culture of every civilization and every period from prehistory to the present.

Subjects include art history, medicine, design, fashion, history, geography, politics, science, anthropology, architecture, sport, music, literature & drama, citizenship, archaeology, and ethnography.
