Idaho State U Selects New Discovery Service for Improved Metadata

Idaho State University Library has decided to adopt a new discovery service after a side-by-side comparison between its previous service and a competitor.

The university decided to adopt EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS) in part for its relevancy rankings and the inclusion of metadata from multiple vendors, according to Chris Kowalczyk, electronic resource librarian at Idaho State University.

"Our library strives to offer cutting-edge research and innovative solutions and we believe EDS will take research to the next level for our students and faculty, said Kowalczyk, in a prepared statement. "EDS is a very flexible tool that allows us to address very specific needs for our users. We were impressed with many of the features that cater to the needs of our students, particularly EDS's customization features, widgets and its integration with our other databases and search tools."

Founded in 1901, Idaho State University serves nearly 14,500 students in more than 280 programs. More information about the university is available at
