    Primo provides users with a universal solution for the discovery and delivery of print and digital information sources, regardless of format and location.
    Primo offers advanced, high quality search results based on existing metadata. After finding the desired materials, Primo can facilitate the delivery of the physical item from the library or provide immediate access to digital copies.
    Primo is a Web-based solution that runs under UNIX. It comes with a built-in publishing platform that is used to process raw data (MARC, XML, MAB, and Dublin Core) and turn it into high-quality, indexed information that is saved in Primo Normalized XML (PNX) format. The processing of the data source information is performed by pipes that understand the various library source formats. The PNX data can be quickly and efficiently searched by the Search Engine.
