Ex Libris Primo Central to Search SwetsWise Online Content

Ex Libris Group, a library automation vendor, announced that following an agreement with Swets, a developer of content management services for libraries and publishers, mutual customers will be able to search the SwetsWise Online Content ejournal gateway via the Primo Central Index of scholarly electronic materials.

SwetsWise Online Content covers the metadata and abstracts of more than 40 million articles and 14,500 full-text scientific periodicals from more than 5,700 publishers. The Primo Central Index, provided as a cloud-based service to hundreds of libraries around the globe, is an integral part of the Ex Libris Primo discovery and delivery solution. As a one-stop service, Primo enables users to fulfill their information needs by exploring their library’s locally managed collections along with global and regional resources indexed in Primo Central, and to obtain one blended, relevance-ranked result list.

David Beychok, vice president for discovery and delivery solutions at Ex Libris, remarked, “We are thrilled to be the first discovery index offering the comprehensive metadata and abstracts covered by SwetsWise to mutual customers of Ex Libris and Swets. Through Primo Central, users in the Primo community of over 1,300 institutions obtain instant access to their institutions’ local collections and global resources, benefiting from a seamless discovery experience. SwetsWise content is an important addition to the extensive scope of materials in Primo Central and one that will provide substantial value to Ex Libris customers.”
