With EBSCO Discovery Service, researchers can conduct a discovery search of their library’s entire collection on a single, powerful search platform—including databases, special collections, eBooks, catalog records, archives and a wide range of digital content available through their library. EDS uses the same intuitive features that are available on EBSCOhost—the leading research platform designed to optimize the user search experience.
However, unlike most discovery services, EBSCO Discovery Service offers unique features and tools that are specifically designed to enhance the academic experience. These EDS features are built to assist academic researchers at any level—from undergraduate research, to an advanced graduate-level research experience.
Users have the option of conducting a discovery search from the Basic Search Screen which provides a single search box, or the Advanced Search Screen which allows users to search with search modes, expanders, limiters and more.
