China/Asia on Demand Metadata Accessible via EBSCO Discovery Service
A new partnership between EBSCO Publishing and Oriprobe Information Services Inc. will allow content from China/Asia On Demand (CAOD) to be accessible within EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS). The agreement allows for metadata from this valuable collection of research literature from Asia to be added to the Base Index of EDS. The EDS Base Index represents content from about 20,000 providers (and growing) in addition to metadata from another 70,000 book publishers. EBSCO says this represents far more content providers and publishers than any other discovery service.
China/Asia On Demand features a vast collection of reliable, authoritative information spanning arts and humanities, STM (Science, Technology, Medicine) research, social and business information. The collection includes more than 10,000 journals and more than 40 million research articles. The addition of this content to the EDS Base Index will benefit EDS users looking for unique research literature from China, Japan, and Korea.
China/Asia On Demand is part of a growing list of publishers and other content partners that are taking part in EDS to bring more visibility to their content. Partners include the world’s largest scholarly journal and book publishers, including Elsevier, Wiley Blackwell, Springer Science+Business Media, Taylor & Francis Informa, SAGE Publications, and thousands of others. Partners also include content providers, such as LexisNexis, Thomson Reuters (Web of Science), JSTOR, ARTstor, Credo Reference, World Book, ABC-CLIO, and many others.
