Primo Studio Tool Tops Set of New Enhancements for Ex Libris Primo

Jul 31, 2018

Ex Libris, a ProQuest company, is pleased to announce enhancements to the Ex Libris Primo discovery and delivery solution that improve the user experience and empower libraries to better meet their users’ needs through customization of the Primo interface.

A new enhancement is Primo Studio, an online tool for customizing the user interface and for sharing add-ons and user interface elements contributed by community members. With Primo Studio, libraries can easily extend their institution’s brand, customize the Primo user-interface design—with real-time previews of the changes—and leverage features and apps submitted by other Primo customers. Activating such apps and customized interface elements can be done with just one click.

Other enhancements include a dedicated newspaper search interface within the Primo user interface. With this feature, libraries benefit from increased visibility of their news collections while patrons enjoy improved discovery and access to over one billion items of this specialized content. In addition, libraries can now foster greater resource awareness and improve usability with a new Open Access facet and enhancements to Resource Recommender. 

A week-long Primo hackathon, including a live YouTube event and ongoing collaboration and support throughout the event, provided customers with the opportunity to share ideas and develop community apps for Primo Studio.
