While some discovery services provide broad coverage across a variety of subject areas, EDS is designed to provide a broad and deep approach to discovery. This means that we go to great lengths to not only provide comprehensive coverage of each subject area (e.g., Middle Eastern Studies), but the highly refined and robust indexing needed to offer an appropriate resource for academic subject-specific research.
Save your patrons time with our advanced Arabic-language search technology. EBSCO's search technology accounts for variations in the way Arabic letters are written, such as handling the alternate seats for hamza on alif, or the use of alif maksura for yeh (or vice versa), as well as removes other characters (tatweel) and diacritics (such as fatha, kasra, etc.). It also accounts for different ways Arabic text can be represented, not only for different character encodings but also text encoded with explicit presentation forms for each character in a word.
