EBSCOhost Integrated Search available to SUNYConnect

Message

Hello.

The announcement (below) has gone out to the vendor’s list of SUNY library campus contacts.  EBSCO is providing this federated search tool to SUNYConnect at no additional charge for simultaneous searching of any EBSCO database, SUNYConnect resources as well as the SUNY union catalog.

(Your library can include other non-EBSCO databases and your local Aleph catalog for a fee.)

Couple of issues/upcoming changes to this system:

Message

1 – OLIS has asked the vendor to remove the “retrieve item” link from union catalog results …that is using the first 856 found in a record and unless they can make it campus-specific creates authentication/authorization issues.
2 – EhIS and ScienceDirect are not playing nice together; OLIS has asked for more details and eta for that capability
