NewsBank's Readex Content Added to EBSCO Discovery Service

By Africa S. Hands

From EBSCO:

American historical collections from NewsBank’s Readex Division will be searchable via EBSCO Information Services (EBSCO) robust and comprehensive discovery service, EBSCO Discovery Service™ (EDS). The new agreement will add metadata from Readex’s digital collection, Archive of Americana, into EDS and provide seamless access and full text searching for mutual customers, enabling them to search many of the most widely used collections of primary source research alongside their own library’s collection.

The addition of the Readex collection to EDS will greatly enhance the discovery experience for libraries. The collection of historical books, newspapers and government publications enables researchers, teachers and students to explore every aspect of United States history, culture and daily lives across three centuries.
