How do I set Integrated Search connectors to not automatically be searched on my EBSCO Discovery Service profile?

If your institution’s EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS) subscription includes integrated search connector databases from external providers, you can default those connector databases to not be searched by default on initial searches.

When you do this, connector databases are not searched but still appear in the integrated search panel as an option to be searched on the result list. To view results from a connector database that has not been searched, a user selects the database in the integrated search panel and those results are displayed.

To set connector databases to not be searched in your EDS profile:

  1. Select the desired EDS profile and click the Databases Sub-Tab. The Databases Screen displays.

  2. Scroll to the Remote Content (Integrated Search Connectors) area of the list.

  3. Set the radio button to Off for each of the connectors you would not like to be searched by default.

  4. Click Submit to save your changes.
