University Sees Good Return on Investment with Success of EDS and SirsiDynix

IPSWICH, Mass. (PRWEB) August 25, 2014

It has been two years since the launch of EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS) and SirsiDynix for Paris-Sorbonne University Abu Dhabi and the university reports its usage of resources has maintained a steady increase during that time.

When the university first looked at discovery services they considered many options but chose EDS and SirsiDynix to optimize and increase use of the librarys collection which includes 23 databases and 80,000 e-books. Ensuring a good return on investments was a priority for the university and now they can see their decision to go with EDS and SirsiDynix was the right one.

EBSCO and SirsiDynix have partnered to provide mutual customers with easier access to databases, e-journals and other content that researchers are seeking by integrating EDS into SirsiDynix's eResource Central solution. The partnership allows libraries to take advantage of the benefits of both services and mutual customers will get better, easier access to their resources.

EDS and SirsiDynix was officially launched in 2012 and according to Johan Engelbrecht, Head of Library at Paris-Sorbonne University Abu Dhabi the availability of EDS and Sirsi has had a positive impact on their library Our motivation for discovery was two-fold: increase usage of our e-resources and make the search process as easy as possible. The integration of EDS and Sirsi Dynix went very smoothly. We were able to customize the site and included our own branding. We have also seen a marked increase in the use of all of our resources since the implementation.

Paris-Sorbonne University Abu Dhabi attributes the relevancy ranking of results, ability to refine searches and array of customization options to their success. Feedback from staff and students continues to be very positive and for one professor life changing. A professor in Philosophy has told me that EBSCO has changed his whole lifefor the better!

EBSCO Discovery Service creates a unified, customized index of an institutions information resources, and an easy, yet powerful means of accessing all of that content from a single search box-searching made even more powerful because of the quality of its relevance and value ranking technology.
