Citation Trail: Expanding the Reach of Research

Christine Stohn, Senior Product Manager, Discovery & Delivery, Ex Libris

Here at Ex Libris we are excited about our new Primo feature: the citation trail. The citation trail allows you to explore a topic and collect material by following a chain of articles that cite each other. This feature enhances serendipitous discovery and allows you to easily see the academic context of your sources. Read the press release here.

The citation trail works in two directions. For any given source you can see the articles it cites. At the same time, you can access another list of those articles that cite that source. This gives you easy access to important articles that will expand and enrich your own work. Watch this video to see how it all works!
