How does it work?

Developed in-house (“Other Places to Search”) is included in the facets on each Primo results page.   In addition to Google Scholar and Microsoft Academic, we’re including three major OA aggregations:  BASE ( https://www.base-search.net), CORE (https://core.ac.uk) and Paperity (https://paperity.org).  

When a page of search results loads, our “Other Places to Search” facet appears on the left, closed by default (saving screen real estate and staying out of the way of users who could care less about searching more deeply).   The green arrow I added to the screenshot shows what it looks like as the results page loads:

 

Click the down-arrow symbol (  ) and the facet expands to reveal five other places to search:

 

 

The first three (marked with the  icon) are exclusively open access. The other two well-known sites often contain open content as well.  Click any one of the five sites and the text from your Primo searchbox will be run against that source; results shown in a new browser tab.
