ABSTRACT:

EBSCO continue to integrate its products and services with Koha to extend its functionality. This paper presents Koha integrations into:

1)      EBSCO Discovery Service: EDS brings together the most comprehensive collection of content—including superior indexing from top subject indexes, high-end full text and the entire library collection—all within an unparalleled full-featured, customizable discovery layer experience.

2)      Open Athens: OpenAthens is an advanced access management system that delivers all your libraries resources to your users by simply having them sign in via a single login.
The integration with Koha allows uses to gain access to all of the libraries resources using their Koha credentials.

3)      Publication Finder: A feature of Full Text Finder, the new library holdings and link management service which includes a knowledge base, holdings management tools, and a fully functional link resolver.
