The Integration of the EDS API with Stockholm University's library software platform provides students access to advanced search functions such as rich metadata, relevancy ranking, full-text linking and other augmented search functions. The EBSCO Discovery Service also allows access to critical subject indexes and supports facets, limiters and expanders.

Anders Söderbäck Head of Publishing and e-Resource Management at Stockholm University comments about the EDS API in the press release:

"We felt that EDS provides the flexibility as well as stability that we were looking for to help our library achieve our goals. It was crucial to find a service with a good API as well as a short implementation period and EDS API was a perfect fit."
