Ex Libris Primo Central Index to Cover BNA and MLA Collections
Ex Libris Group, a provider of library automation solutions, announced that the U.S. Bureau of National Affairs (BNA) and the Modern Language Association of America (MLA) have joined the rapidly expanding group of information providers that enable the Primo Central Index of scholarly content to cover their collections.
A publisher of information and analysis products for professionals in business and government, BNA will make available to the Primo Central Index over 90 journal titles aimed at legal practitioners and law students. These resources cover the fields of corporate law and business; employee benefits; employment and labor law; environment, health, and safety; health care; human resources; intellectual property; litigation; and tax and accounting.
Extending its scope in the abstract and indexing domain, Primo Central will also index the MLA International Bibliography collection, which provides the only comprehensive bibliography of books and articles published on modern languages, literatures, folklore, and linguistics. The database includes over 2.3 million citations in more than 70 languages.
Offered as a cloud-based service to hundreds of libraries around the globe, the world-class Primo Central Index covers hundreds of millions of scholarly resources from leading information providers. Primo Central is an integral part of the Ex Libris Primo discovery and delivery solution, which enables library users to enjoy the full benefit of a one-stop service for their information needs and to explore their library’s locally managed collections along with global and regional resources from the Primo Central Index.
Ex Libris recently signed agreements with a number of content providers that will make their collections available to the Primo Central Index: American Council of Learned Societies (Humanities E-Book); the American Mathematical Society; ASTM International; Brepols; Ciando; CSIRO Publishing (journals); Duke University Press (journals); Edinburgh University Press; Informit, the online service of the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (selected collections); M.E. Sharpe (journals); Morgan & Claypool Publishers; Royal Society Publishing; and Sabinet.
