EBSCO Discovery Service Shares Its Road Map of Future Developments

EBSCO Information Services published a blog post on the evolution of EBSCO Discovery Service, explaining that “EBSCO is excited to unveil a series of enhancements, new capabilities and interface designs that will be delivered over the coming 12 months and beyond to improve users’ experiences.” The post explores some developments that are in the works and principles that are always kept in mind when making improvements, including better accessibility, more social authentication options, greater personalization, a privacy-first approach, improved search capability, and more multilingual support.

The post notes, “The plan here is to roll out the new interface to customers based on readiness, which will depend on your configuration and current profiles. In order to make the transition simple, different customers will gain access at different times. Libraries will have simultaneous access to the existing EDS UI [user interface] and the new EDS UI to be able to become familiar with new features and to provide feedback. Because the new UI will be populated from existing EDS profile configurations, there is NO migration—just a smooth, natural transition.”
