This presentation will give an update on the highlights of Primo®, the discovery and delivery solution from Ex Libris, and the Primo Central Index. Features at Primo sites from all over the world will be presented showcasing the power and flexibility of Primo.
The Primo Central index is a mega-aggregation of hundreds of millions of scholarly e-resources of global and regional importance. These include journal articles, e-books, reviews, legal documents and more, that are harvested from primary and secondary publishers and aggregators, and from open-access repositories. The Primo Central Index is offered as an integral part of the Primo Discovery and Delivery solution, which allows library users to enjoy the full benefit of a one-stop service for their research needs.
Through a single search box, users can now search across the full breadth of content from the library's collection, exploring the library's locally-managed collections, along with the global and regional resources from the Primo Central Index. Primo presents the results in a single, relevant-ranked list from which users can access items of interest.
