With the abundance of electronic resources available today, many schools prefer to access their educational assets in one place. Federated search engines and other discovery tools allow libraries to do just that—easily search through multiple content sources in their catalog at the same time.
The Infobase Search API (XML Gateway) allows our discovery tool partners to easily integrate the data from Infobase products into their federated search solutions for our shared customers. It provides a much-needed “communication bridge” between Infobase content and those discovery tools.
The databases that are currently part of the Infobase API include:
- Health Reference Center
- American History Online
- Modern World History Online
- African-American History Online
- American Indian History Online
- Ancient and Medieval History Online
- Science Online.
More Infobase products will continue to be added to the Infobase API.
