Stewardship of metadata
The dedicated team of professional Ex Libris librarians uses its deep expertise in metadata management to continuously aggregate, enrich, and update resources. Our experts and content handling processes bring together and maintain data from all available sources, treating sources equally to improve the discoverability and accessibility of content.
Authoritative and rich metadata
The scholarly resources searched through Primo contain extensive metadata which improves the delivery of relevant results. The level of record detail includes subject terms, controlled vocabularies, author-provided keywords, metadata from A&I sources, CrossRef DOIs, Ulrich’s peer-reviewed indicators, and more – resulting from an efficient flow of data and close collaboration with content providers.
Customers play a critical role in suggesting additions to the Central Discovery Index. The Ex Libris Idea Exchange Content forum provides you with opportunities to submit, review and vote on ideas to help us grow our collections to meet both library and user needs.
