RSC Meeting: Federated Search

In an effort to improve the federated search of our online periodical and eRef content, the RSC is considering moving from the SerialsSolutions 360 platform to EBSCO’s Integrated Search platform.

From initial review, it looks like we would have greater flexibility with customization of the search and results interfaces with EBSCO’s product.  Results from our EBSCO resources would also return more quickly, improving the speed of the overall searching.  We can also apply the full-text filter prior to conducting the search with Integrated Search, a feature we have wanted for quite some time.

More new coming on this as we learn more about the products.  A decision will be made by July 1st.
