The University of Cape Town Libraries will soon be going live with a world-class information-finding solution, Primo.

With this cloud-based solution, which replaces the current library system, students, researchers, academics and staff will be able to discover UCT Libraries’ rich collections. This includes print and electronic books, journals, theses, media resources, digital collections and course reserve (short loan) material. Content from OpenUCT will also be discoverable via Primo.

The Primo platform will enhance the search process in such a way that information is easily discoverable across a range of devices.

UCT Libraries will switch over to the new system on 1 December 2017.
