Encore Discovery Offers New Article Integration Capabilities

Innovative Interfaces, Inc. ( announced that Encore Discovery ( now offers deep article integration to promote the most relevant article content alongside library catalog results, making articles more findable through facets and other discovery tools. This new feature set is native to Encore-not federated search-but a solution that streams enhanced data directly from content providers via modern web services to deliver faster results and a superior user experience.

On an initial search, Encore previews top article results in the catalog results view, promoting the most current scholarly content on the very first page. Encore exposes the abstract content for each article (to aid in evaluation), and whenever possible, a direct link to the full text is included on the browse display. An articles format facet allows users to focus exclusively on article results, and article-specific facets can refine results to full-text or peer-reviewed materials. What's more, Encore leverages its Did You Mean? algorithm to help users clarify and continue searches on the article screen; and a tag cloud driven by library subject headings and community tags guides users to related searches for articles. Deep article integration is available to any library using Encore 3.3 and higher, and the newest features are showcased in Encore 4.0.

Innovative also announced a new partnership with EBSCO Publishing ( that will offer integrated access to a library's own EBSCOhost subscriptions through the library's Innovative Encore Discovery platform. The agreement also allows Encore customers to add reading recommendations directly into Encore catalog results for mutual customers who use NoveList Select.

Innovative will utilize the EBSCOhost Integration Toolkit (EIT) to access metadata from EBSCOhost databases for which the library has a current subscription. The partnership will bring new features to those offered through EIT including source type, publication title, and facets to expose the subject and date range of the results set. This integration will provide the means for Encore searchers to retrieve real-time search results from EBSCOhost for databases subscribed to via EBSCO, without the need to preindex the content, integrated with their catalog search results. EIT also provides links to the underlying full text with support for a variety of file formats.
