Subject: [EDS_PARTNERS] EDS Wiki: Updates & Content Spotlight


We want to let you know about some changes coming to the EDS Wiki, as well as highlight some of the content that has been added recently. 


Improved Browsing

We are improving our categories to make it easier for you to find and categorize content.  Changes include:


·         Addition of a Widget category, with sub-categories for the location the widget will appear (detail records, results list, etc.).

·         Realignment of the Administration category to contain information for library administrators such as CustomLinks, authentication, and branding.

·         Addition of an API Demos & Samples category so users can share documentation about the EDS API.  Note: the API documentation category is still available, but contains the official API documentation and cannot be edited. 


 The new homepage categories are in preview mode here and will be available from the home page on Tuesday, April 2nd.


Content Spotlight

We can't list them all but there has been a lot of activity on the EDS Wiki. Here are a few interesting posts and creative Widget solutions from the EBSCO team and EDS customers.


·         Display results of link resolver's inside a Detailed Record widget (or the results of any custom link)

·         Make suggestions from a Thesaurus (e.g. MeSH)



We always like to hear from you if any of these spark ideas for your library’s discovery solution. Your comments and improvement suggestions are always welcome on the Wiki pages too. 


If you do not have a Wiki login you can request one from the link in the top toolbar and we will set you up as soon as possible.
