A recent agreement between Accessible Archives, Inc.© and EBSCO Publishing (EBSCO) will enable unique primary source content from the 18th and 19th Century to be discoverable within EBSCO Discovery Service™ (EDS). Metadata from Accessible Archives will be added to the EDS Base Index, the most comprehensive and robust collection of metadata from the best content sources. The addition of this content will serve as a valuable resource for EDS users with interest in American history and culture.

Accessible Archives, Inc. is an electronic publisher of primary source full-text historical databases encompassing rich, comprehensive material found in leading historical periodicals, books and newspapers. Accessible Archives content also provides unique historical elements reflecting broad views of American history and culture, such as eyewitness accounts of historical events, vivid descriptions of daily life, editorial observations, commerce as seen through advertisements, and genealogical records.

EBSCO Discovery Service users will have the ability to search the full text of Accessible Archives resources bringing an extended list of results alongside additional library resources. EDS 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.
