An interesting development at EBSCO — is this what librarians expect when they guide students to use these databases? Does this change your perception of “authority” when it comes to subscription databases?
Researchers demanding the latest information and insight into issues have a new source of information. Blog content from premier Weblogs is being made available in online aggregated databases. Thanks to a partnership between EBSCO Publishing and NewsTex, blog content is being added to many EBSCOhost databases.
NewsTex licenses influential blog content directly from bloggers and makes the real-time content available. Blog feeds, news feeds, and historical archives will be delivered to EBSCO and added to applicable databases.
EBSCOhost is one of the most used research services with databases covering a variety of disciplines. Blog content with subject matters including art, career, economics, environment, finance, food, health, law, marketing, medical and technology will be added to nearly 100 appropriate databases.
