Content published using the national infrastructure for digital repositories Digital Academic Archives and Repositories (DABAR) is indexed in the EBSCO Discovery System (EDS). EDS was recently procured by the National and University Library in Zagreb (NSK) for all Croatian public universities, public polytechnics and public scientific institutes.
Users can now discover content of all digital repositories established on DABAR within the EDS integrated search platform of available e-resources. EBSCO is the world's leading provider of research databases, e-journals, e-books, journal subscriptions and other librarian services.
By successfully providing metadata to EDS, DABAR once more showed itself as an interoperable platform implemented in a way that enables dissemination not only directly to end users but also through other services as well (search engines, aggregators, etc.). DABAR’s interoperability, therefore, ensures greater visibility of institutions, research communities and authors that are using repositories established on DABAR.
By selecting the DABAR repository in the EDS search system, all content of the institutional and subject-based digital repositories of the Croatian research and higher education system will be displayed (preprint papers, peer-reviewed articles, conference papers, datasets, dissertations, master's thesis, books, educational content, images, audio and audio-visual recordings, presentations, digitized material, etc.).
More information on DABAR's inclusion in EBSCO Discovery System can be found on NSK website (in Croatian).
