Discovery Services

A discovery service is an online tool that enables libraries to search seamlessly across a wide range of content. Discovery services provide our customers with another method for discovering our content. The most frequently used discovery services are ProQuest-ExLibris Primo, ProQuest-ExLibris Summon, EBSCO Discovery Service, and WorldCat Discovery. Customers are able to select their licensed content to integrate it into their catalogue. 

The discovery service providers are given complete metadata and full text of our journals and eBooks, including contemporary and archival content. This allows the vendors to index our content fully to make it more visible and discoverable. Springer Nature works closely with vendors to create clear targets, and to ensure the completeness and discoverability of our content
