Information about Discovery@Kent State

What is Discovery@Kent State?

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.

What about KentLINK?

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.
