Soutron and EBSCO Publishing Sign Partnership Agreement

Soutron and EBSCO Agreement to Integrate Diverse Search Environments.

Derby  ()

International library transformation company Soutron announces a technology partnership agreement that will allow Soutron to integrate EBSCO Discovery ServicesTM (EDS) with Soutron's Library and Knowledge Management systems to benefit clients seeking a single integrated search environment for their research and information resources.

"Soutron is very excited to be working with EBSCO on what we regard as a key initiative to develop access to digital and physical resources in an organization" says Graham Beastall, Managing Director. "It will allow us to offer customers using Soutron additional opportunities to maximize use of their collection through EDS single search indexing technologies. Our goal is to make life easier for end users and for library managers."

EBSCO Publishing (EBSCO) uniquely provides access to a wide range of information resources including research databases, e-books and a discovery service for libraries and other institutions around the world. This initiative will offer added benefits and opportunities to customers of both Soutron and EBSCO as the companies share technology expertise to provide a unified solution across their two platforms.

"This partnership means that libraries, knowledge management centers, and information resource portals can ensure optimal access to knowledge assets, physical resources, and digital resources, thus ensuring optimal exploitation of resources" states Tony Saadat, President of SoutronGlobal  

Executive Vice President of Technology and Chief Information Officer for EBSCO Publishing, Michael Gorrell, says the agreement will help customers using Soutron's Library and Knowledge Management systems incorporate the rich metadata and features that EBSCO Discovery Service provides. "We continue to explore what ‘discovery' means to our customers and in doing so we realize that there are as many different scenarios for library discovery as there are institutions. Partnering with Soutron allows both companies to expand the services provided to customers while helping each library to create its own discovery experience, highlight its collection and meet the unique needs of its end users."
