Ulrich’s comprehensive, objective bibliographic information will improve resource discovery

Ex Libris®, a ProQuest company, is pleased to announce the incorporation of Ulrich’s™ periodical data into the Ex Libris Primo® discovery and delivery solution and SFX® link resolver. Ulrich’s, ProQuest’s leading source of authoritative bibliographic information, significantly enriches Primo discovery and SFX services.

Ulrich’s contains comprehensive information about more than 390,000 print, electronic, and microform serials of all types from around the world. The data delivers unbiased, in-depth details about publications and provider packages in more than 950 subject areas and 200 languages. Continuously updated, the data includes bibliographic information and access points of value to researchers and librarians, such as ISSN, title, publisher name, peer-review status, online availability, A&I coverage, subject area, language of text, and URLs for journals and publishers.

The integration of Ulrich’s data increases the number of peer-reviewed resources represented in Primo and SFX, thus solidifying the role of the library as an authoritative and trusted provider of scholarly resources. Researchers using Primo and SFX will now be able to identify more peer-reviewed scholarly material than ever before.

Shlomi Kringel, Ex Libris vice president of discovery and delivery solutions, commented: “This integration is the first of many opportunities to build on the combined assets, expertise, and creativity of ProQuest and Ex Libris. Integrating Ulrich’s data enhances the accuracy and extensiveness of our solutions to the benefit of libraries, librarians, and researchers.”
