Five Swedish institutions select the Primo discovery and delivery solution from Ex Libris

Copenhagen, Denmark—September 21, 2011. Ex Libris is pleased to announce that five Swedish institutions joined the Primo® community within the last month. KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Mid Sweden University, Luleå University of Technology, the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency, and Jönköping University represent the latest in a line of Scandinavian institutions that have opted for the superior discovery and delivery service offered by Primo.

Combined with the Primo Central Index, which connects libraries to a mega-aggregate of hundreds of millions of scholarly e resources, Primo enables users to search the entire spectrum of a library’s resources—both e-resources and physical holdings—through a single point of access, and to receive a single, relevance-ranked list of results.

Primo, the Primo Central Index, and the bX article recommender join other Ex Libris systems deployed at KTH—the MetaLib® metasearch solution and SFX® OpenURL link resolver—and are integrated with the KTH library’s Millennium system. SwePub, a collection of conference papers, dissertations, scholarly articles, and other academic publications from Swedish universities, and the KTH DiVA database, which contains publications produced by the university’s researchers and students, are also searchable through Primo.

Ulf-Göran Nilsson, head of acquisitions, publishing, and net-based learning at the KTH School of Education and Communication in Engineering Science, commented: “We went through a very rigorous selection process, involving a pilot study preceding the actual procurement, to enable us to thoroughly study the systems on the market. The content-neutral stance of Ex Libris, the active international Primo user community, and the ability of individual libraries to customize the solution were the main reasons for our adoption of Primo.”

Christoph Frech, Ex Libris sales director for North and West Europe, stated: “We are delighted that these major Swedish institutions have chosen Primo. The extensive evaluation process undertaken by KTH indicates once more that Primo is the discovery and delivery solution that delivers the greatest value to research libraries.”
