Content not retrievable through those user-friendly discovery routes may even become difficult to justify from a curricular standpoint. Librarians have become more vocal in urging library vendors to connect their content to whatever discovery system they have chosen. EBSCO Information Services, a leading supplier of aggregated content to libraries, has at last opened up its metadata and, if contractually possible, most of its full-text content to outside discovery services.
