EBSCO Modernizes Publication Discovery with Full-Text Finder™

~ The Publication Search Service Delivers an Intuitive, Time-Saving Search Experience, and Better Ways to Manage Holdings ~


IPSWICH, Mass. — November 4, 2014 — EBSCO Information Service (EBSCO) continues to modernize publication discovery with the introduction of Full-Text Finder™ (FTF). Available to all EBSCO Discovery Service™ (EDS) customers with their subscription, and as a stand-alone application to non-subscribers, Full-Text Finder delivers the intuitive, time-saving experience when searching for journals, e-books and articles, and managing the library’s holdings.

Full-Text Finder features an integrated workflow solution that includes a state-of-the-art publication search service and vendor-neutral link resolver, along with a knowledge base and streamlined Holdings and Link Management™ (HLM). A part of EBSCOadmin™, HLM allows library administrators to save time with integrated auto-population of holdings; auto-complete to readily identify and find resources; and a multitude of workflow enhancements.

FTF is the culmination of extensive research and development to identify library and end-user needs, understand user habits, and deliver a modern experience to find journals and manage holdings. EBSCO built FTF from the ground up as the natural progression of the EBSCO experience with EBSCO A-to-Z™ and LinkSource™, which have been the familiar publication browse and link resolver respectively focused on journals and journal content. The proliferation of more than a million eBooks and the growth to thousands of journal packages and full-text databases required a new approach to handle the massive volume of content while meeting the expectations of today’s users.

The features of Full-Text Finder that improve the end user experience include:

Full-Text Finder is being released to existing customers of EBSCO A-to-Z and LinkSource in phases to ensure continuous, uninterrupted service during the migration period. To learn more about the benefits of Full-Text Finder, visit
