Search and Discovery APIs


Improve your discovery experience with enhanced API access. The Search and Discovery APIs showcase EBSCO Discovery Service features and fit modern technology requirements.




The EBSCOHost Entitlement API enables libraries and partners to customize key functions of the EBSCO open link resolver to get their patrons easy access to EBSCOhost full text database content.  By providing an opportunity to access full text content from EBSCOhost full text databases, specifically PDFs, EBSCOHost Entitlement API makes research easy.



EBSCO Discovery Service API (EDS API) is our classic discovery service API.  EDS API gives you access to an institution’s entire collection through one entry point: a search box. With EDS API, you can integrate search directly into your library or corporate portal. You can also search and browse full-text databases and popular databases from leading information providers.
