A new agreement between EBSCO Publishing and Marquis Who’s Who will add metadata from the Marquis Who’s Who database into the Base Index of EDS, thus affording seamless access and full text searching for customers of the two companies ‚ this will enable library researchers to search the Marquis Who’s Who collection of more than 1.4 million biographies right along with their own library’s collection.
I understand why Google looks good to any undergraduate or general adult researcher daunted by the prospect of having to make their way through the complexities of finding good research information online through our library portals. Anyone who can make library e-resource material more readily discoverable and accessible is taking a step in the right research direction. Kudos to EBSCO and Marquis Who’s Who for going that distance.
More as it happens,
