The Texas A&M University Libraries, including the Dee J. Kelly Law Library, has selected EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS) to provide students and faculty with upgraded access to articles, books, images, video and other resources. The library will migrate from Primo Central to EDS in order to provide a better overall experience to students and researchers of every discipline and at every level.
