: how we utilise Primo as a resource discovery tool
London E-resources Group, 29 June 2012
ExLibris products @ KU
Aleph - LMS
Primo – resource discovery tool
SFX – knowledge base/link resolver
Metalib – A-Z list databases
Ustats – usage statistics
Verde - ERM
bX – article recommender
ARC – reporting tool for Aleph
Our Primo front-end: “iCat”
iCat access to databases
iCat with database search
iCat access to full-text articles
Choices …
How to incorporate our e-journals into Primo
Looking forward to e-books (also now harvested from
SFX into Primo)
Whether to have a Metalib public interface
Whether to provide database and e-journal A-Z
Working with Primo Central (index of articles,
chapters, reviews)
User education / rankings / formats
Decisions …
Harvest records daily from SFX (e-journals and e-
books) into Primo
Do not use Metalib ‘v’ interface, or quick sets as a
search choice in Primo
Database A-Z through Metalib; e-journal A-Z through
SFX
Set up Primo to only show results with full-text
Use ranking to boost our own print book records
Technical issues …
Access to ‘My Account’ for our staff and students is
through Shibboleth; for external members with their
username and library PIN
In theory allows single sign on to e-resources (but not
always – we use Shibboleth, Open Athens, EZProxy)
Harvest data from our repository (E-prints) by OAI
Mobile view for searching (but not account view)
http://icat.kingston.ac.uk
