Ex Libris Primo Community in North America Continues to Expand

The Primo discovery and delivery solution continues to be
the system of choice for leading academic libraries

Ex Libris® Group is pleased to announce that in recent months, numerous academic and research libraries in North America have selected the rich functionality of the Primo® discovery and delivery solution, raising the number of Primo sites worldwide to over 900.  

Institutions that have recently selected Primo, including the Primo Central Index of scholarly e-content, include the following:

“Our staff members are thrilled that Idaho State University’s Oboler Library is able to offer the Primo discovery tool to support research and teaching at ISU,” commented Janet Warnke, assistant university librarian for library systems at the university. Ms. Warnke continued: “Our students, faculty, and staff are going to benefit greatly from their ability to access scholarly material through a robust, intuitive user interface. As a Voyager customer for many years, we have been following Ex Libris as it actively participates in shaping the role of technology in libraries. Our decision to embrace Primo over competitors’ products was greatly influenced by our belief that Ex Libris will continue to develop sound solutions that address the ever-changing needs of libraries.”  

Mark Triest, president of Ex Libris North America, remarked: “I’m honored to welcome these diverse institutions to the rapidly growing global Primo community. This is an exciting time for our Primo customers. Building on the Company’s ongoing commitment to openness in all Ex Libris solutions, we are strengthening our strategic partnerships in the discovery arena, as demonstrated by recent agreements with OCLC, Elsevier, and Copyright Clearance Center.”
