The University Library hosted a hands-on training on EBSCO Discovery Search or EDS last August 7, 2014 at UPLB Main Library with Ms. Tay Chiew Boon, Training Specialist at EBSCO Information Services based in Singapore as resource person.
Ms. Tay Chiew Boon introduced EDS, a customizable discovery tool that can provide a fast, single search and comprehensive content of the library collection, highly refined relevancy ranking, elaborate indexing, and inclusion of high-end indexes of searches, and instant access to full text articles included in the library subscription.
The participants were provided with hands-on experience on the mechanics and special features of EDS and were also trained on the techniques in conducting simple to sophisticated searches.
The training, which is an In-House Activity for Staff Development of UPLB Library, was expected to enhance librarians search skills that will enable them to provide full assistance to clients in their information needs and also, to equip librarians with the knowledge on EDS service which could then be shared to library clients through Library orientation or briefing. On the other hand, the EDS service is expected to provide users/clients with quality information to meet their research needs with less effort and time.
A trial to EDS was previously requested from the service provider, the EBSCO Publishing. Before the end of this year, EDS is expected to be part of the UPLB Library system. The use of this system targets to meet one of the University Library goals that is to maximize the use of information resources.
