University of Adelaide’s Barr Smith Library selects Ex Libris Primo

A member of Australia’s Group of Eight (GO8) research universities,
Adelaide joins over 1200 sites that have opted for the Primo discovery solution

Ex Libris® Group is pleased to announce that the Barr Smith Library of the University of Adelaide has adopted the Primo® discovery and delivery solution.

University Librarian Ray Choate emphasized that this was an enterprise-level decision for the University and was based on a number of major considerations: “Primo will enable students and researchers to discover the full range of library resources via a single search, with the option to personalize the ranking of results. The solution will play a pivotal role in fulfilling the learning and educational objectives of the University’s new strategic plan, which emphasizes small group learning and individual research projects, requiring enriched discovery of diverse library resources. Primo is also a component of our preparation and architecture for implementing the Ex Libris next-generation Alma SaaS library management solution in 2014 as part of the University’s participation in the Alma collaborative partner program, and replacing our current Voyager system.”

“The discovery of library resources through Primo will also raise the University’s return on investment in electronic and print library resources,” continued Mr. Choate, “and will increase  the discovery and use of the Barr Smith Library’s broad general and special research collections of over two million items. Primo will enhance our users’ research experience by integrating library services into the discovery interface. Users will be able to fulfill their library needs—whether recalling a book on loan, renewing a borrowed item, or opening an electronic journal article—directly from Primo.” 

Mr. Choate added that the library is pleased to offer the bX Recommender with Primo. This service provides article recommendations that are related to a user’s selections. Based on the Amazon.com principle of “customers who bought this item also bought…,” bX recommendations are generated from the usage data of thousands of researchers.

Holley Dumble, Ex Libris director of sales for Australia and New Zealand, remarked: “The University of Adelaide has a central role in the introduction of Alma to the academic library community of Australia and New Zealand. Having become a close partner of Ex Libris, the University is warmly welcomed into our regional Primo community, which includes many other members of the Group of Eight.”
