Harvard Library Bibliographic Dataset Now Available via EBSCO Discovery Service
EBSCO Publishing made the newly released Harvard Library Bibliographic Dataset available through EBSCO Discovery Service. The dataset contains 12 million open-access catalog records from Harvard’s 73 libraries.
The metadata in the Harvard Library Bibliographic Dataset has been created, acquired, and modified over decades and includes bibliographic information for books, videos, audio, images, manuscripts and maps. These unique records consist of information describing works—including creator, title, publisher, date, language, and subject headings—as well as other descriptors usually not available to end users. There are no costs associated with the addition of the content into EBSCO Discovery Service for new or existing customers.
Harvard’s collection is now visible to users of EDS along with a growing list of publishers and other content partners that are taking part in EDS to bring more visibility to their content. The EDS Base Index represents content from approximately 20,000 providers (and growing) in addition to metadata from another 70,000 book publishers.
