Abstract
The paper describes and demonstrates the use of Primo as the discovery layer for a Fedora repository. Primo is an Ex Libris product designed to be a one-stop solution for discovery and delivery of resources from various sources. Fedora/Primo systems have been deployed on two UNSW eResearch projects, based on requirements of research groups in public health and social sciences. Planning has commenced for implementation of Primo on existing Fedora/VITAL systems, including MemRE (Membranes Research Environment). With the general release of Primo 3 in April 2010, VITAL will be replaced as the search and discovery layer of the institutional repository also. The presentation demonstrates KnowlHEG, an electronic gateway for Human Resources for Health (HRH) material relating to Asia and the Pacific region, which was jointly developed by the University Library and the School of Public Health and Community Medicine (SPHCM) at UNSW. Primo provides the user interface, search functionality and persistent URLs on a Fedora repository. The paper describes and demonstrates the use of Primo as the discovery layer for a Fedora repository. Primo is an Ex Libris product designed to be a one-stop solution for discovery and delivery of resources from various sources. Primo gathers and normalises records from multiple systems. A ‘pipe’ is configured for each data source.
