The Institute of Education in London chooses Ex Libris Primo

Share this on social media:

The Institute of Education (IOE), University of London, has chosen the Primo discovery and delivery solution from Ex Libris. Primo will enable the IOE’s Newsam Library and Archives to offer thousands of users access to one of the largest European collections of current and historical materials on education and related areas of social science.

'The Library and Archive Service is committed to supporting the Institute’s strategic ambitions for excellence in research, teaching, and learning,' commented Andrew McDonald, director of Newsam Library and Archive Services, Institute of Education. 'Integrating seamlessly with our current systems, Primo will replace the OPAC interface of our catalogue, currently provided by the SirsiDynix Symphony system. We are particularly excited by the prospect of significantly improving the user experience: Primo will simply transform access to the whole range of our print, electronic, archive, and repository content, not only by students but also by researchers in the United Kingdom and throughout the world, thus fulfilling one of our key strategic imperatives.'
