Beta Launch of Primo Central
Ex Libris® Group announced the launch of Primo Central for beta testing at 14 partner institutions. When searching in their institution’s Primo interface, users in partner libraries will have seamless access to the Primo Central mega-aggregate of scholarly e-content. Primo Central is a centralized index consisting of data harvested from primary and secondary publishers and aggregators. With Primo Central, users simultaneously search locally managed collections and global e-content and receive search results that are blended into a single relevance-ranked list. Libraries can tailor the relevance ranking to ensure appropriate emphasis on their local collections. Ex Libris provides Primo Central as a service, in a cloud computing environment.
