add patent information to Primo Central
At its core the Primo Central Index content is all about scientific publications. But since the integration of the ProQuest resources the resource type scope became much wider
Patents applications are published by the national patent offices and they are publicly available. For a science and technology audience it would be very beneficial to search patent publications and literature publications in one index. First choice would be the publications from patent offices. Second best would be data from commercial aggregators.
After reviewing this idea, we decided to update our plans to include this suggested change. Thank you for your contribution
