Z39.50 Client & Server
EOS.Web provides access to other library systems using Version 3 of the Z39.50 protocol.
Libraries can define host sites and databases available to their staff (in Powersearch) and/or to the public (via the OPAC) using a Z39.50 Setup function. OPAC users can select any combination of Z39.50 sites and perform a single search for materials at all of the selected sites. Record retrievals display in a consolidated list with each separate database clearly identified.
