Ex Libris Announces the Release of Primo Version 3.1

By integrating user services in the library environment and reducing
information overload, Primo 3.1 takes discovery to the next level

Ex Libris® Group announce the release of version 3.1 of the Primo® discovery and delivery solution. The new functionality in this version is the product of continued collaboration with the rapidly expanding international Primo community, which now consists of over 850 sites that span 45 countries on six continents.

Highlights of the new Primo version include the following:

“We are looking forward to working with the enhanced functionality of Primo 3.1,” commented Naomi Greidinger, deputy director of Haifa University Library. “We believe that the integration of article recommendations will fit into users’ search flow and help them locate items they had not thought of consulting. In addition, with the enhanced range of library activities that users can perform in the Primo interface, the system will present an even more natural and intuitive experience.”

Jørgen Madsen, Primo product manager, remarked: “Primo 3.1 takes context to the heart of the discovery experience. The interplay between an information system’s user interface, the content offered, and the way in which the system “understands” the user’s context is central to the success of a discovery solution. Primo’s fusion of services embedded in a modern user interface, leveraging aggregations of rich content and usage data, provides an advanced discovery and delivery solution that libraries can adjust to meet the diverse needs of contemporary users.”
