EBSCO Publishing and EBSCO Information Services Merge


  • EBSCO Industries, Inc. announces the EBSCO Information Services (EIS) and EBSCO Publishing (EP) businesses will merge on July 1, 2013 and will operate as a single business under the name EBSCO Information Services (EBSCO). Tim Collins, a 26-year EBSCO veteran and previously President of EBSCO Publishing, will serve as President of the combined entity. EBSCO continues to grow through increased market share and a constantly expanding suite of products and services. By combining the businesses, the company is emphasizing the importance of tight integration of products and services in order to heighten the overall value and benefit for customers and end users. For example, later this year, EBSCO will be releasing Full Text Finder, the replacement to its existing A-to-Z with LinkSource product. While Full Text Finder will continue to be available as a standalone product, it will also be fully integrated into EBSCO’s popular EBSCOhost® and EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS) product line. As Full Text Finder will be a component of EDS, customers will receive Full Text Finder at no additional charge.
