    Thank you,


    Partnership between EBSCO and BioOne Online Journals Adds Scholarly Biological, Ecological and Environment Sciences Articles to EBSCO Discovery Service™
    ~ More than 100,000 Scholarly Articles from Bioscience Research Journals
    Now Searchable in EDS ~

    IPSWICH, Mass. — May 7, 2013 — BioOne Online Journals are now searchable via EBSCO Discovery Service™ (EDS), from EBSCO Publishing. EBSCO Discovery Service users are able to search more than 100,000 scholarly articles from bioscience research journals in the Base Index of EBSCO Discovery Service. The addition of this valuable resource adds to the rapidly growing STM content available to EDS users.

    BioOne aggregates publications in the biological, ecological and environmental sciences. The collection of high-impact bioscience research journals stems from societies, libraries, academe and the private sector – making it an ideal resource for students and researchers. BioOne’s collaboration of publications includes 176 titles from 132 publishers, featuring timely content on a wide-array of today’s most pressing topics, including global warming, stem cell research and ecological & biodiversity conservation.

    EBSCO Discovery Service customers may use a CustomLink to access full text on the BioOne site. CustomLinks are a feature that dynamically creates links from a result to related information on another web site and is one of many linking options for EDS customers to extend the reach of discovery.

    BioOne is part of a growing list of publishers and other content partners that are taking part in EDS to bring more visibility to their content. Partners include the world’s largest scholarly journal & book publishers including Elsevier, Wiley Blackwell, Springer Science & Business Media, Taylor & Francis Informa, Sage Publications, Nature Publishing, IEEE, ACM and thousands of others. Partners also include content providers, such as LexisNexis, Thomson Reuters (Web of Science), JSTOR, ARTstor, Credo Reference, Encyclopedia Britannica, World Book, ABC-CLIO, The Hathi Trust and many others.

    EBSCO Discovery Service creates a unified, customized index of an institution’s information resources, and an easy, yet powerful means of accessing all of that content from a single search box—searching made even more powerful because of the quality of metadata and depth and breadth of coverage.

    EBSCO Discovery Service is quickly becoming the discovery selection for many libraries (, and an obvious partner for content providers. Because the service builds on the foundation provided by the EBSCOhost® platform, libraries gain a full user experience for discovering their collections/OPAC—which is not typical in the discovery space. Further still, in the many universities and other libraries where EBSCOhost is the most-used platform for premium research, users are not asked to change their pathways or habits for searching. There’s simply more to discover on the familiar EBSCOhost platform, and the same can be said for library administrators who can leverage their previous work with EBSCOadmin™.

    Announcing Call for Submissions for Academic Librarians to Receive a Travel Stipend to Attend the Upcoming American Library Association (ALA) Annual Conference in Chicago

    Copyright Clearance Center, Inc. (CCC), a not-for-profit organization and leading provider of licensing and content solutions, announces the winners of its Conference Scholarship Program for Academic Librarians: Bridgett Birmingham of Florida State University, Katie Hutchinson of Walsh University, Jennifer L. Kegler of SUNY Brockport, and Bing Wang of Georgia Tech University. Each received a travel stipend of $1,500 to attend the Association of College and Research Libraries’ ACRL 2013 conference recently held in Indianapolis.

    “I’d never had the opportunity or funding to attend a large scale conference like ACRL,” said Hutchinson. “The funding provided by the scholarship was fantastic because otherwise I wouldn’t have been able to go.”

    “We are thrilled to announce the winners of our new scholarship program for academic librarians,” said Tim Bowen, Director, Academic Products & Services, CCC. “We understand how critical and rewarding these industry events can be and believe this program provides librarians with new opportunities for enrichment, while demonstrating commitment to their profession.”

    Due to the high number of submissions received prior to ACRL 2013, CCC is currently offering the same program for academic librarians to attend the American Library Association (ALA) Annual Conference from June 27 to July 2 in Chicago. Applicants must be full-time, permanent staff members or academic librarians currently employed by a US-based academic institution of higher learning. A full list of requirements can be found here.

    To apply for the scholarship program, librarians need to submit a response of up to 300 words to a short question. The application deadline is May 20, 2013. Winners will be notified May 31, and scholarship stipends will be issued June 10. CCC encourages librarians who applied for an ACRL scholarship to resubmit their entries for the ALA program.
