Institutional Repositories (IRs) can be directly loaded into EBSCO Discovery Service
so that they can be fully searched alongside all other EDS resources/content.
EBSCO supports harvesting institutional repositories via Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting (OAI-PMH) or via File Transfer Protocol (FTP).
EBSCO has developed a flexible framework for mapping your data to EDS. If your institution sends along additional documentation of the metadata format you’d like for us to support, including a full dataset of your records, EBSCO can investigate integration options. Each unique institutional repository is analyzed for optimized loading and display.
