The Collins Memorial Library search tool Primo is getting an upgrade in early August as part of a collaborative regional effort by the Orbis Cascade Alliance, the Pacific Northwest consortium of academic libraries that also delivers the popular resource sharing program Summit. The library’s Primo search box on the library home page will have a new look based on feedback from focus groups.
Benefits of the new search tool include:
- Mobile-friendly: Smoother navigation on smaller-screen mobile devices.
- Citation trails: Additional bibliographic information about resource citations in other research.
- More visible related readings: Recommended items related to a search result and the designation of an article as peer reviewed are better highlighted.
- Cleaner design: Icon images and font changes improve how search results appear and make finding them easier. Items borrowed from Collins, Summit and interlibrary loan will automatically transfer to the new Primo interface.
