Metasearch - Discovery Service
Fast searching in a unified index containing several databases including the library catalogue of the HSG Library.
EBSCO Discovery Service offers you a single access point to searching a vast range of our library's resources. In addition to the library holdings you can search in thousands of journals and in all EBSCO databases. Furthermore, content from Web of Science and from SourceOECD is also part of the new index. The search functionalities are consistent with EBSCOhost - an interface well-known and used for years at the University of St. Gallen.
Many of us are waiting for a «one stop-shopping» solution, but even with EBSCO Discovery Service we are not quite there. Several databases are not contained in the large index, not least because of competitive reasons:
- ProQuest (ABI/Inform Complete, Sociological Abstracts u.a.)
- Beck Online
Databases that are not text-based, e.g. company information, financial and statistical databases are also not searchable.
EBSCO Discovery Service is licensed until the end of 2013.
As a guest you may get access to our Meta search - Discovery Service as well. Please bear in mind that only non-commercial content (e.g. library catalogue) is available.
We are very much interested in your experiences and thoughts and we are looking forward to your comments. Please send your statements to the following email address: Bibliothek@unisg.ch
