Ex Libris Group has announced a new group of partners, the first academic institutions to collaborate with the company on its Primo Central index of scholarly materials.
While more than 250 colleges and universities in 28 countries already use Primo, the new universities are the first to partner with Ex Libris on Primo Central. The partners include longtime Ex Libris partners like Belgium's Catholic University of Leuven, and well-noted universities like Oxford University, the University of Notre Dame, and Vanderbilt University.
These partner libraries will start using the Primo Central service following the beta release at the end of December 2009. The general release is targeted for mid-2010.
