Innovative Interfaces, Inc.

EBSCO and Innovative Interfaces, Inc. have joined together to enable tightly-integrated access between EBSCO Discovery Service and Innovative's Encore discovery platform, where Encore is the front end system for EDS content.

Having access to EDS's unified index will expand the quality and amount of content available for Encore users, while adding the enhanced features and functionality available from EDS. Researchers will also be able to search databases from providers like EBSCOhost via the Encore interface, providing a uniquely powerful article search experience.

With the integration, researchers have the option of viewing:

  • A single result set of EDS resources and Sierra's Catalog
  • The complete abstract and subject terms from high quality content
  • A single set of facets from both the catalog and EDS to refine the result list across all types of content
