Partnership between EBSCO an H+H Software GmbH
Hidden Automatic Navigator (HAN) from H+H Software Now Includes Direct Linking to EBSCO Discovery Service™
EBSCO Information Services (EBSCO) and H + H Software GmbH, the producer of the e-resource management software Hidden Automatic Navigator (HAN), announce a new partnership to provide expanded services to mutual customers. The partnership will enable mutual customers of EBSCO Discovery Service™ (EDS) and HAN to access content in a more seamless and simplified method.
With the new partnership between, authorized library users will be able to access their library’s online resources, including EDS, from any location, including remotely. The integration partnership enables HAN to authenticate the user via the library system or Shibboleth independently from the location and provides access to articles. HAN uses an own proxy URL for each resource. By using the new HAN Web-API, the proxy URLs can now be retrieved automatically in the background, creating a more simplified way for users to access content and reducing the library’s administrative effort.
H+H Software GmbH Managing Director, Michael Etscheid says: "The linking of HAN to EBSCO Discovery Service is a great enhancement for users. From now on, libraries are able to offer remote access to the content in EDS without any additional effort. This optimally combines the advantages of both systems. The statistical reports that can be created with HAN will also help libraries to further improve their offer."
EBSCO Information Services Senior Manager, Library Service Engineering, Europe & Latin America, Claus Wolf says "This development shows how fast and flexible EBSCO can respond to customer requirements with the help of its Library Service Engineers. We greatly appreciate the collaboration with H + H Software GmbH as we have been able to drive the integration forward so libraries can take advantage of the benefits of both services."
