EBSCO and NEWTON Media Collaborate to Add Media News Content from Central and Eastern Europe to EBSCO Discovery Service™

Metadata from NEWTON Media, a.s. the leading Media Monitoring provider in Central and Eastern Europe, will be searchable in EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS), a robust and comprehensive discovery service from EBSCO Information Services (EBSCO). NEWTON Media delivers the largest media news archive in the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Poland and spans many different media sources including news digests of print, radio, television, internet and agency news and monitor current events, advertising, and social networks.

Metadata from NEWTON Media’s collection offers more than 900 print sources including national and regional media, social and professional magazines, business bulletins and corporate newsletters. Content also includes a news archive of hundreds of internet servers, transcripts of almost 30 television and radio stations from the Czech Republic, Slovakia & Poland and e-clippings from print articles. Coverage dates back to 1996.

Newton Media 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 HathiTrust and many others.

EBSCO Discovery Service brings together the most comprehensive collection of content—including superior indexing from top subject indexes, high-end full text and the entire library collection—all within an unparalleled full-featured, customizable discovery layer experience.

EBSCO Discovery Service is quickly becoming the discovery selection for many libraries (www.ebscohost.com/discovery/eds-news), 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.
