    Announcing CAB Abstracts Pilot for Primo Central

    CABI has partnered with Ex Libris, a ProQuest company, to pilot their CAB Abstracts data for Discovery. The pilot period runs from August 27, 2018 to November 30, 2018 and includes citation data for a subset of CAB Abstracts (more than 450,000 records) and all CAB Abstracts full text content (more than 400,000 records).

    To ensure the success of this pilot, we encourage all CAB Abstracts subscribers to select the following database in Primo Central Registration to activate the pilot program:

    Source Collection name

    CAB International

    CAB Abstracts Pilot

    All subscribers, including those who subscribe via ProQuest, Dialog, Ovid, Clairvate, or directly from CABI, should subscribe to this collection. All users will be linked from Primo Central directly to the CAB Abstracts platform for the duration of the pilot. CABI will ensure that all users who subscribe via other platforms are authenticated to the CAB Abstracts platform.

    This pilot project is a unique opportunity and we encourage librarians to activate the CABI content to make it more discoverable in Primo. The more institutions who participate and provide feedback, the more effective this much-anticipated pilot will be!

    Action you need to take:

    Update the holdings in your Primo Central MyProfile by subscribing to the new collection CAB Abstracts Pilot.  For information on how to update your profile, see Activate Resources in the Primo Central Wizard
