Q. UAB Libraries OneSearch: What does Expand My Results do?

Answer

Checking the Expand My Results box in UAB Libraries OneSearch will expand your search to include sources of information from a list called the Primo Central Index (PCI). The PCI is “...is a mega-aggregation of hundreds of millions of scholarly e-resources of global and regional importance. These include journal articles, e-books, reviews, legal documents and more that are harvested from primary and secondary publishers and aggregators, and from open-access repositories.“ [1]  The UAB Libraries are able to customize the PCI search by selecting what resources from the PCI are activated and available for the UAB Libraries OneSearch.
