Big Changes at the Library

Posted by Admin On 10:50:00 AM
Notice something different about Georgia Tech’s Research Library? You should, because big changes are taking place as part of Library Next, Georgia Tech Library’s five-year renewal project.

A reimagining of resources, services and spaces, Library Next is a continuation of Georgia Tech’s commitment to research and learning excellence. This remarkable transformation will see the Library become the model institution of the 21st century — connected, responsive to sea changes in student and faculty need, and dedicated to the stewardship of analog information in a digital age.

The first change you’ve likely noticed is our new search interface. New for 2016, Georgia Tech presents PRIMO from Ex Libris, an encompassing, fast and user-friendly catalog and discovery system.

PRIMO’s single search interface is the gateway to a wealth of scholarly content, including our print, electronic and digital collections. Its intuitive search and robust ranking algorithm provides relevant results, based on the context of your search and allows for serendipitous discovery and exploration with both “virtual browsing” and “browse search” features.

Perhaps most importantly, PRIMO provides access to our online resources (articles, e-books, and more with in-context request options for print materials. Delivery of print materials to the Library and faculty offices is scheduled online, in PRIMO, via the “Request for pick-up or office delivery” option.

This migration gives Georgia Tech students and faculty access to the integrated Emory University collection housed off-site at the Library Service Center. The rest of the University System of Georgia will join us in PRIMO migration in 2017.
