Primo Product Working Group


The IGeLU Primo Working Group was formed in 2009, in recognition of the need for representation for the growing international Primo user community.

The objective of the IGeLU Primo Working Group is to collaborate with Ex Libris in developing new services and functions for Primo. A core activity is conducting the annual enhancements voting process, in collaboration also with the ELUNA Primo Working Group, representing North American users. Other activities include planning for the annual IGeLU Conference and regular meetings with Ex Libris Product Management to discuss future directions and current issues relating to Primo

The Primo listserv is hosted by IGeLU / ELUNA and is managed collaboratively by the IGeLU Primo WG and the ELUNA Primo WG. The listserv supports communication, collaboration, and knowledge sharing between members of the Ex Libris users community. Subscription approval is by institution domain email for recognisable named individuals (for example firstname.lastname@library) currently employed at sites licensing Ex Libris products, in addition to Ex Libris staff and affiliates by email domain. Internal distribution lists and institution managed group email accounts (including where recipients and posters may be anonymous) will not be approved. Periodic review may result in removal. Posts are only permitted by subscribers and posts should not be distributed beyond eligible subscribers. Subscribe: and Post:
