Discovery@Kent State simultaneously searches the metadata of KentLINK, OhioLINK and a large number of selected databases and indexes. Users are able to request material from OhioLINK or connect directly to eResources including full-text journal articles if they are available in any of Kent State's databases. In addition the service will present links to related news items, images and videos.
Discovery@Kent State is not a replacement for KentLINK. In fact, the discovery service depends on KentLINK for the metadata it searches and for requesting services. There will still be local searches that will be more efficient directly in KentLINK.
Use the Discovery@Kent State Reading List Tool to create customized reading lists for your Blackboard courses. These lists can be annotated by instructors and linked directly to University Libraries' content, including the full-text of articles. These lists can be copied from course to course and shared with other instructors if desired.
Look for the "Discovery@KSU Reading List" option under Tools in your Blackboard courses.
