Primo simplifies and streamlines search and discovery to meet the evolving needs of the research community at ETH Zurich

Hamburg, Germany – June 28, 2010. Ex Libris® Group is pleased to announce that the library of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich (ETH Zurich) has gone live with the Primo® discovery and delivery solution.

The ETH-Bibliothek Knowledge Portal, powered by Primo, provides users with seamless access to a huge array of collections, covering print, electronic and digital resources. The Primo search box—displayed on every page of the ETH-Bibliothek web site—enables users to search simultaneously in the NEBIS library catalogue (a union catalogue of 90 libraries), the institutional repository of ETH Zurich (ETH E-Collection), the image archive, the ‘’ platform, where over 80 digitized journals are stored, and the multimedia portal of ETH Zurich. Queries made via the Knowledge Portal also access the metadata of 22 million articles in the Digital Article Database Service (DADS) of the Technical Information Center of Denmark (DTIC), making use of Primo’s Deep Search functionality. Many more local resources will be integrated with Primo over the coming months and years.

“The new Knowledge Portal dramatically improves access to our scholarly resources,” commented Ms Arlette Piguet, head of customer services at ETH-Bibliothek and project leader. “With Primo, ETH-Bibliothek is adapting its services to meet the evolving behavior of our users. In the age of powerful search engines, the demands of our research community are constantly changing and their standards are higher than ever. With Primo we can meet those demands head-on.”

“The smooth and efficient implementation of Primo is a reflection of our close cooperation with Ex Libris, and their eagerness to meet our requirements for high quality results in a complex environment,” added Mr Andreas Kirstein, head of media and IT services and deputy director of the ETH Bibliothek.

Ullrich Jüngling, vice president of sales at Ex Libris Germany, commented: “We are delighted that ETH-Bibliothek has gone live with Primo, providing a single point of access to its extensive collections. It has been a great honor to work in partnership with the library, whose selection of Primo has reinforced their role as a leading research institution in Switzerland.”
