EDS Search

What is EDS?

EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS) provides an easy, powerful search platform to users where they can search almost all the resources their university subscribes to in one easy search.

In EDS you can

  • find books, journal articles and online resources
  • limit your results to online items and available sources
  • mark and evaluate material
  • store information in a private storage area
