Films on Demand Discovery Integration

Follow

Infobase sends Films on Demand collection data monthly to the following Discovery services:

We regularly send both our content and our metadata to these vendors. Our customers can simply enable the correct collections in the Discovery Admin account to make Films on Demand videos discoverable in their institution’s interface. Most customers subscribe to the Films on Demand Master Academic Collection. If you're not sure what collection(s) you have, please email Support.

More detailed information about these partnerships, including information on how to set up your FOD resources, is below. If you have any questions, or are using another Discovery service and would like to see FOD resources in your search results, please email Support.

FOD and EDS 

 

EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS)

Select the correct collection in your EBSCO holdings management page, then set up a CustomLink to facilitate the linking. Self-service is possible, but EDS recommends that customers work with their support team through the EBSCO Connect portal.

  1. In EDS Admin, go to Holdings Management > Vendors, and find Infobase Publishing
  2. In the Package Name list, find the correct collection(s) and set to "Selected under Current Holdings."
  3. Set up a CustomLink for these collections under Site/Group Maintenance > CustomLinks

Tips:

  • Most customers subscribe to the Master Academic Collection, which is called "Films on Demand: US: Master Academic Collection" in the EDS Holdings Management Interface (see screenshot below).
  • If you're not finding the correct collection under "Films on Demand", try "FOD", "FMG" or "Films Media Group" instead. 
  • The title counts will not match your FOD platform or Admin title count, as our Discovery Data also indexes material at the series level for Discovery. Each series counts as an additional "title."

Purchased Films on Demand content in EDS

If you have purchased single videos rather than a collection, you can still add them to your holdings. 

  1. Turn on the database Films on Demand in the EBSCO Holdings Management Interface. Note that this collection is all FOD content.
  2. Set up a Local Collection to define your holdings. This is typically done with MARC records;
  3. see our Admin Portal Help Center for info on downloading your FOD MARC records.
  4. Set up a CustomLink for this local collection under Site/Group Maintenance > CustomLinks
