Jerusalem, Israel—October 9, 2012. Ex Libris Group, a world leader in the provision of library automation solutions, is pleased to announce that the Ex Libris Primo Central Index will soon be covering the metadata and full text of all journal content on the Taylor & Francis Online platform and in the Taylor & Francis Open program.
A number of other information providers have recently signed agreements with Ex Libris to enable the Primo Central Index to search their content or to extend the content that is already available for Primo Central searches. These providers include Johns Hopkins University Press (the Press's Project MUSE e-books), SAI Global, Palgrave Macmillan (journals), Plunkett Research, CQ Press, Versita Publishing (Versita open-access journals), and Bridgeman Education.
The Primo Central Index, a cloud-based service adopted by hundreds of libraries around the globe, is an integral part of the Ex Libris Primo discovery and delivery solution. As a one-stop service, the Primo solution enables users to fulfill their information needs by exploring both their library's locally managed collections and the global and regional resources indexed in Primo Central and to obtain one blended, relevance-ranked result list.
"Adding Taylor & Francis journals and content from other distinguished information providers to the Primo Central Index will provide the worldwide Primo user community with even greater and more diverse sources of information," remarked David Beychok, vice president of discovery and delivery solutions at Ex Libris. "Leading academic publishers around the globe are making a valuable contribution to research by enabling scholars to locate resources easily via Primo Central."
