      Discovery Tools vs. Metasearch: What is the Difference?

      Libraries use discovery tools and metasearch to create a “one-stop” search experience for their users, but the two work in different ways.

      Discovery tools collect and index full-text data and its metadata in one place, which is what users are searching when they search in one of these tools.

       

      Discovery Tools and Credo

      We regularly send both our content and our metadata to these discovery tool vendors:

      EBSCO Discovery Services (EBSCO)

      Primo (Ex Libris)

      Summon (Serials Solutions)

      WorldCat Local (OCLC)

      For assistance integrating your Credo collections into your discovery tool, contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

       

      Metasearch and Credo

      Federated search, or metasearch, is when a user enters a search term that goes out to several different databases; all those results then appear in the same place and users can navigate to them from there.

      For customers using the metasearch options listed below, we can provide a unique IP address or a z39.50 username and password so that Credo results are included in their metasearch results:

      360 Search (Serials Solutions)

      AGent Search (Auto-Graphics)

      EBSCOhost Integrated Search (EBSCO)

      Encore Synergy (Innovative Interfaces/III)

      Explorit (Deep Web Technologies)

      Metalib (Ex Libris)

      Reference Universe (Paratext)

      Research Pro (Innovative Interfaces/III)

      SwetsWise Searcher (SWETS)

    • Librarians and Educators

      Our partnerships with publishers and educational technology providers help us acquire authoritative content and develop innovative platforms but our collaboration with librarians and educators who subscribe to Credo’s services is a key part of what makes our information skills solutions so effective. We couldn’t help institutions meet key strategic goals if we had no connection to institutions with strategic goals! Each month we’ll add a new customer profile to show how all different sizes and types of institutions use Credo Online Reference Service and Literati to meet their users' unique research needs while giving them the skills they need for lifelong success.

      Are you a Credo customer who would like to be featured in one of our profiles? Click here to submit information about your experience using Credo Online Reference Service or Literati.
