U California, Berkeley Adopts New Discovery Service To Improve Search Results

The University of California, Berkeley has chosen a new discovery service in an attempt to provide library users with better results.

The university selected EBSCO Discovery Service, a tool that "creates a unified, customized index of an institution's information resources, and an easy, yet powerful means of accessing all of that content from a single search box," according to a news release.

"EBSCO Discovery Service is an important part of our effort to support continuous improvement in library service and is helping students, faculty and staff find scholarly information as quickly and effectively as possible," said Erik Mitchell, associate university librarian for digital initiatives and collaborative services and associate CIO for the UC Berkeley Libraries, in a prepared statement.
