Acquires NISC, Inc.
EBSCO Publishing (EBSCO) has made an acquisition designed to augment the company’s database offerings. EBSCO has purchased NISC, Inc.
Many of the databases acquired from NISC are already available on EBSCOhost and several others will soon migrate to the EBSCOhost platform.
Fred Dürr, president of NISC, Inc., says EBSCO and NISC are longtime partners. “NISC content has had a long and rich existence on the EBSCOhost platform. Those NISC users who do not access the databases via EBSCOhost will undoubtedly find the new EBSCOhost 2.0 platform an enjoyable search experience. We expect NISC users to have an easy transition as they continue their NISC relationship directly with EBSCO.”
Tim Collins, president
of EBSCO Publishing, says the content from NISC, Inc. is an attractive
addition to the EBSCOhost line
of databases. “EBSCO Publishing has enjoyed our longstanding partnership
with NISC and we are very pleased that we were able to acquire the
company. NISC has
painstakingly developed several quality databases that are well received
by customers worldwide. The
addition of these NISC databases to EBSCOhost enables us to offer a richer
collection of databases to better serve researchers.”
