How does the EBSCO Discovery Service search experience differ from EBSCOhost?

There are several key features that make the EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS) searching experience different than EBSCOhost:

  • There is no Choose Databases link. All of your EBSCO databases are searched using EBSCO Discovery Service.
  • Search Options include Discipline Limited Search
  • EBSCO Discovery Service employs limiters that are common to all databases being searched.
  • There is a Content Type filter on the Results List.
  • The top toolbar can be customized by the institution's administrator in EDS.
