EDS Subject Research EDS Music

EDS is by Far the Most Comprehensive Discovery Service for Music Research


While some discovery services provide broad coverage across a variety of subject areas, EDS is designed to provide a broad and deep approach to discovery. This means that we go to great lengths to not only provide comprehensive coverage of each subject area (e.g., Music), but the highly refined and robust indexing needed to offer an appropriate resource for academic subject-specific research.
