ccAdvisor, an online review source of information databases and digital resources, is now available from EBSCO Information Services. ccAdvisor provides in-depth, critical reviews of digital resources for the academic and library markets. The resource is a collaboration between Choice and Charleston Advisor, two well-known and highly respected review sources.
ccAdvisor is a review source for academic databases, websites and tools for librarians, students, and faculty which includes over 400 professionally vetted reviews in all subject areas. Each review ranges from 1,500 to 3,000+ words and analyses content, audience level, user interface, technical details, pricing, contract information and competitive products. ccAdvisor offers ratings, interactive 'Compare Products' tables, a polling utility for user comments and the ability to compile and export lists, save searches, and set alerts.
EBSCO has also formed a partnership with StackMap, a digital platform for indoor mapping. StackMap, a library company founded in 2008, looks to empower patrons via indoor collection mapping. The integration with EDS (EBSCO Discovery Service) aims to help library users find print materials within their physical library more effectively. StackMap services enable users to browse the library’s physical space and resources on a kiosk, tablet or website, as well as locate available computers and study spaces.
