Empowering Libraries to Address User Needs

Meeting user expectations for quick, easy, and effective searching and retrieval, Primo® is a one-stop solution for the discovery and delivery of local and remote resources, such as books, journal articles, and digital objects.
Primo assists libraries in exposing the richness of their collections and engaging userswith an up-to-date discovery and delivery experience.

Interfacing seamlessly with library applications from Ex Libris and other vendors, Primo is an important stepping stone in the transformation of the library towards a new information system architecture.

Primo services can be embedded in commonly used applications such as course management systems and institutional portals and be accessed via mobile devices, enabling a library to meet the needs of users wherever they are.
Comprehensive Discovery and Delivery Solution
The Primo Central Index is offered as an integral part of the Primo Discovery and Delivery solution, which allows library users to enjoy the full benefit of a one-stop service for their research needs. Through a single search box, users can now search across the full breadth of content from the library’s collection, exploring the library’s locally-managed collections, along with the global and regional resources from the Primo Central index. Primo presents the results in a single, relevance-ranked list from which users can access items of interest.
