Lunch & Learn with EBSCO: Achieving Success in Research, the EBSCO Discovery Service Way

**Please use this link to RSVP to reserve your spot for this event**

Success in research stands or falls with discovery. Discovery, after all, is the entry point to the library’s collections. With this in mind, EBSCO has focused much of its development efforts on EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS), which has become the discovery service of choice for thousands of libraries worldwide. So how does EDS support success in research? From its unique approach to relevance ranking, the inclusion of subject indexes, to an array of customization options delivered by our library service engineers, there is much that goes into EDS. This presentation will provide an overview of EDS. The presenter will present the core EDS features and functionality that drive success in research and will look at the array of ways in which libraries can work with EBSCO engineers to customize EDS to meet specific institutional and user needs.

Learning objectives: participants will learn about EDS, its core features and customization options that support success in research.

S064 - Electronic Resource Containers: How accurately are students able to distinguish between the various packaging of online information?
What does it mean to be format agnostic? Our IMLS-funded project studies the user experiences of primary through graduate students using simulated online search results. We seek to discover how students identify containers when selecting digital resources for academic use, and how their judgments influence their evaluation of online information.
