Ex Libris

Ex Libris, part of Clarivate, is pleased to announce a partnership with the PressReader digital newsstand. With this new webhook integration, libraries with PressReader subscription can now offer patrons the ability to search critical, just-published newspaper and magazine content and view the results directly in the familiar Primo user interface, along with other relevant resources.

Access to news content as a primary or secondary source is vital to students and researchers at every level, from beginning to advanced scholars, across every discipline. For new students, investigating credible, evidence-based reporting is essential for developing information literacy and can provide a helpful intro or starting point for research on virtually any topic. Reports also reveal that news content is in demand by advanced researchers as well, and newspapers are frequently cited in scholarly publications.

PressReader offers readers an intuitive and user-friendly way to read newspapers and magazines from around the world, including publications from Europe, Latin America, Asia, the Middle East, Canada, and The U.S. With access to PressReader, users can read everything from local news stories to pop culture magazines, industry reports, and national opinion pieces.

PressReader provides interactive, digital access to nearly 7,000 of the world's best newspapers and magazines. Just like reading a print edition, viewers can browse articles and other key elements, including pictures, advertisements, classifieds, and notices. With the ability to perform keyword searches across all titles, and save both stories and full publications, researchers are sure to find the stories they're looking for.

With a customized Home Feed, the most engaging, relevant, and trusted stories are brought to the front. As a library administrator, you can publish your posts and insert them into the home feed to connect with members directly.

Scholarly success depends on intuitive discovery of ground-breaking insights and information across library's collections. This partnership and webhook integration with PressReader are part of the Ex Libris commitment to helping libraries serve their communities and making it easier for library patrons to discover the information they need to achieve their scholarly goals.


Summary: Ex Libris, part of Clarivate, announced a partnership with the PressReader digital newsstand. With this new webhook integration, libraries with PressReader subscription can now offer patrons the ability to search critical, just-published newspaper and magazine content and view the results directly in the familiar Primo user interface, along with other relevant resources.
