EOS International partners with Deep Web Technologies to deliver improved real-time search

Carlsbad, CA – February 22, 2011. EOS International announced today that it has entered into a partnership with Deep Web Technologies, a leading federated search software developer. The partnership makes Deep Web Technologies’ real-time search application, Explorit, available to EOS customers together with their online catalog systems. The new service, branded EOS.Web Federated Searching, delivers seamless integration of Explorit with EOS. The integration allows library patrons to perform a single search that includes multiple scholarly, scientific, and business journals and the library’s OPAC.

Explorit, first developed in 2002, not only allows researchers and the public to search multiple journals from a single interface but it also delivers exceptional relevance ranking of search results with sorting and clustering of results and an alerting capability that delivers new relevant results to a user’s inbox.

EOS International, for the past 30 years, has been providing worldwide library automation and knowledge management solutions to thousands of corporate, legal, medical, academic, association, and government libraries worldwide to facilitate access to information in their organizations. EOS client libraries span over 48 countries on six continents.

Sal Provenza, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for EOS International, commented on the partnership. “Our vision is to connect people to knowledge. Our partnership with Deep Web Technologies does exactly that, and in a very effortless, yet effective way. Our partnership with Deep Web provides our clients with easier access to relevant journals and other sources that would otherwise require separate searches.”

Abe Lederman, Deep Web Technologies President and CTO shared his thoughts: “The bar is high for real-time search. Users demand the most relevant results from the best information sources with the least amount of work. Bringing library OPACs and the best scholarly sources together into a single search meets those user needs.”
