Widgets

Widgets enable you to add EBSCOhost or EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS) functionality to your institution's website, such as a search box. You can also include widgets in the Related Information area of the EBSCOhost or EBSCO Discovery Service Results List or to an article's Detailed Record in order to:

  • Display external dynamic results (e.g. images from Flickr, videos from YouTube, Google Books results, ...)
  • Links to frequently used content sources (e.g. LibGuides)
  • Custom messages, other HTML or text uses...

EBSCO Apps & Cloud Services

The EBSCO app store is called EBSCO Apps & Cloud Services. EBSCO Apps & Cloud Services is an online catalog of apps that customers can visit to browse and request additional information. Arrange by category and keyword-searchable, apps available through EBSCO Apps & Cloud Services will enhance the EDS, or even the EBSCOhost, experience.

As a part of EBSCO Apps & Cloud Services, EBSCO has introduced a new cloud services package for libraries that prefer to have EBSCO manage their apps. Available to libraries for a low annual subscription fee, cloud services includes consultation and development, as well as implementation and hosting of apps in the EBSCO cloud. In addition, ongoing support and maintenance is provided by EBSCO's Customer Support team. With Cloud Services, all apps are fully multi-tenant so libraries automatically receive updates to their apps hosted by EBSCO.
