Primo Update V

This post is just to say that overnight tonight is when Concordia University’s Primo catalog will be reconnected with everyone else in SWITCH again.

There may be a slight disruption in Primo service on Tuesday morning, but hopefully not.

Thanks for your patience!

Primo is back!

Again, terribly sorry for the inconvenience!

Primo Access Currently Down

Something happened last night that is causing people not to be able to log into Primo, which also blocks off-campus access. Brand new Primo. Sigh.

SWITCH and Mount Mary IT staff are working on the problem. We’ll post here when it’s resolved.

Sorry for the inconvenience!

Primo Update IV

We’ve hit a couple of snags with Primo that we need to report.

The search box is not functioning properly, so when you search and end up in Primo, there’s no search box when you get there.

To work around this, you can:

  • Hit the refresh button Image result for refresh icon in your browser. This will engage another search box.
  • Use this link instead, until we get this fixed:

Sorry for any inconvenience! We’re getting there!

Today’s the day: our new library catalog, Primo, is live!

Head to our home page to test drive it. It’s the new search box!

And find our Primo Search help guide here, on our Ask a Librarian page, or in Haggerty Help Guides. And find a new handout in the Learning Commons.

(Please note that the Primo Search guide is still a work in progress. We will add more in the coming weeks! Contact a librarian for immediate assistance.)

Primo Update II

Haggerty Library staff are testing and finalizing Primo, in preparation for going live next Tuesday, January 8.

One new item to add is that a Primo help guide will be available next week in Haggerty Help Guides, along with new details throughout existing guides.

Please see the previous blog post for helpful Primo links. And keep watching this blog for additional updates!

Primo Update I

Season’s Greetings!

Hopefully, by now, most of you have seen or heard something about Primo coming in January. If not, catch up here!

Primo is our new, advanced library catalog, in conjunction with the SWITCH libraries group. It goes live on January 8, 2019.

Watch this blog for more news coming soon, but if you’re researching over the break, please note:

  • Primo will replace WorldCat Discovery, so please do not place WorldCat requests after January 4.
  • Your Primo login will be easy to remember! It will be the same as your regular Mount Mary computer login.
    • And, if you are logged into your MMU email, and you click Sign In in Primo, that’s it. You’ll be automatically logged in!
  • On the 8th, there will be a new home page search box and a separate link for easy signing in to Primo.
  • Until the 9th, library checkouts are unavailable. Sorry!

That’s all for now! Bookmark this blog, or sign up for the RSS feed.
