Electronic research databases provider EBSCO Publishing (EBSCO), US, has announced an agreement with Germany-based WTI-Frankfurt eG. The agreement allows content from WTI’s TEMA (Technology and Management) database to be available in the Base Index of the EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS).
TEMA includes more than four million bibliographic references geared toward engineers, technicians and scientists. Content is pulled from a wealth of sources including journals, dissertations, reports, conferences and books from databases including DOMA Medical and Plant Engineering and WEMA Materials.
Designed to help professionals make quick, decisive and informed decisions, TEMA covers a broad range of subjects. These include: Aerospace, Automotive research, Ceramics and plastics, Civil Engineering, Electrical engineering and electronics, Energy, Information technology, Instrumentation, Machinery and plants, Management and organisation, Manufacturing, Materials, metals and paints, Mechanical engineering, Medical engineering, Mining, Textile Engineering and Transportation.
EBSCO recently added German Theoretical & Empirical Social Research Projects and Social Science Literature (GESIS) content to EDS with the addition of Social Science Research Information System (SOFIS) and Social Science Literature Information System (SOLIS). EBSCO also introduced two German-Language search enhancements — an improved umlaut search and increased support for variants — for EBSCOhost and EDS users.
WTI-Frankfurt eG is part of a growing list of publishers and other content partners that are taking part in EDS to bring more visibility to their content. Partners include the scholarly journal & book publishers including Elsevier, Wiley Blackwell, Springer Science & Business Media, Taylor & Francis Informa, Sage Publications, and thousands of others. Partners also include content providers, such as LexisNexis, Thomson Reuters (Web of Science), JSTOR, ARTstor, Credo Reference, World Book, ABC-CLIO, and many others.
The EDS Base Index represents content from approximately 20,000 providers (and growing) in addition to metadata from another 70,000 book publishers.
EBSCO Discovery Service creates a unified, customised index of an institution’s information resources, and an easy, yet powerful means of accessing all of that content from a single search box.
