Ex Librisí Primo Central Adds 78 A&I Sources

Ex Libris Ltd., provider of library automation solutions, announced that RMIT Publishing has made additional scholarly content from its diverse collections searchable in the Primo Central Index. Under the agreement, Ex Libris will index a further 78 abstract and indexing (A&I) databases that cover agriculture, the arts, Asian studies, business, education, engineering, health, history, law, media, the sciences, the social sciences, and technology.

Offered as a cloud-based discovery service to hundreds of libraries around the globe, the Primo Central Index is an integral part of the Ex Libris Primo discovery and delivery solution. As a one-stop service, Primo enables users to explore their libraries’ locally managed collections along with global and regional resources indexed in Primo Central and to obtain one blended, relevance-ranked result list.

Heather Crosbie, director of RMIT Publishing, commented, “As the largest provider of scholarly material in Australia, we are keen for the widest possible community of global researchers to discover new perspectives on world issues. We believe that enabling the Primo Central Index to search Informit facilitates users’ research and significantly increases the visibility of Informit’s scholarly resources worldwide.” Holley Dumble, Ex Libris director of sales for Australia and New Zealand, remarked, “Expanding the agreement with RMIT Publishing is an important development for the Primo community in Australia and New Zealand. … The convergence of global and regional resources in Primo Central enables us to provide a truly global service to users.”

RMIT Publishing provides online research content from Australia, New Zealand, and the Asia-Pacific region, offered through the company’s Informit search platform and online databases. RMIT Publishing was first established in 1989 within the library at RMIT University, with the mission to improve the accessibility, visibility, and preservation of regional content.
