Integration enables mutual customers to extend access to trusted engineering content, improves ROI of available resources
Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, today announced that content from Knovel, an engineering decision-support solution, is discoverable through the EBSCO Discovery Service™ (EDS). The integration allows mutual customers to combine answers from high quality engineering references within a unified search platform, as well as directly access Knovel subscription content via the EDS platform.
Exposure of high value content is extended to the broader organization, increasing utilization via a simplified user experience. "EBSCO Discovery Service brings together the most comprehensive collection of content in one location, allowing organizations to make sure they get the most out of their content investments," said Chappy Floyd, Vice President of Discovery Strategy at EBSCO. "We're pleased to work with Elsevier to make Knovel content available to engineers when and where they need it."
Discovery platforms, such as EDS, provide a unified search experience. Through a single search box, users can retrieve results from all resources available to them from their organization. This enables users to access a wide range of references, and helps organizations to better promote the resources in which they have invested.
"We've integrated Knovel with several third party applications to increase efficiency in an engineer's workflow, and EBSCO Discovery Service is another example of how we strive to facilitate access to Knovel across a broader range of applications," said Meagan Cooke, Elsevier's Senior Director, Product Management. "This integration will help end users to more easily find answers from trusted resources, and it helps our customers to better achieve higher returns from their Knovel investment."
The integration is available to mutual customers at no cost. In order for customers to access the entitlements available in their Knovel subscription, configuration is required within the EBSCO admin™ utility. Elsevier recommends that customers contact their EBSCO customer service representative for assistance as needed.
