Why is Flipster content appearing in my EDS API search results?

The Flipster database is now compatible with EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS) API, as the Flipster mobile app relies upon the EDS API to support search and retrieval.  Flipster results are appearing alongside your regular EDS API results because you have access to Flipster and have New Content Automatically Enabled for your EDS API profile(s).

How can I turn this off?

To keep Flipster content from appearing in your EDS API results, please follow these steps:

  1. Log into your EBSCOadmin account at

  2. Choose your EDS API profile, which will have an Interface type of wsapi.

  5. Repeat steps 1 through 4 for each of your EDS API profiles from which you would like to remove Flipster results.
