Additional information providers now partnering with Ex Libris to boost the discoverability of their content through Primo Central

Jerusalem Israel—May 24, 2011. Ex Libris® Group, a world leader in the provision of library automation solutions, is pleased to announce that the United States 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.

“We are delighted to be working with Ex Libris as our first discovery service partner,” commented Rick Montella, vice president of strategic resources at BNA. “This partnership will result in a valuable channel for library users who need to access our publications and services.”

Barbara Chen, director of bibliographic information services and editor of the MLA International Bibliography, noted: “It’s important to us that our wide-ranging collections will now be indexed in Primo Central and become easily accessible to our subscribers around the world. Each step toward greater discoverability is a benefit to both our subscribing libraries and the research community in general.”

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.

“The Primo Central Index will be greatly enriched by these diverse new partnerships covering a wide range of academic disciplines,” remarked Michal Gindi, publisher relations manager at Ex Libris. “We are seeing a growing trend of abstracting and indexing providers, like the MLA, who are joining the Primo Central partnership program and supplementing the extensive scope of content covered by our primary information providers.”
