  • Description Primo Central Index (PCI) is a multidisciplinary abstract and citation database that searches across hundreds of millions of records for journal and news articles, conference proceedings, technical reports, and more. The citation metadata is harvested from hundreds of publishers and aggregators, and many of the records include abstracts. Note that the records searched in PCI are the same ones used by UW-Madison Libraries' Article Search. While the same content is searched in the two interfaces (PCI and Article Search), there are differences in the presentation and features available to users.
