[Eril-l] Primo and "classic catalog"?

We migrated from a Millennium/EDS set-up to Alma/Primo last year. We did set up a Primo scope that indexes our physical holdings (similar to the old OPAC if you use a browse). Honestly, getting rid of the "looking in two places to find your stuff" has been one of the most beneficial aspects of the migration for the vast majority of our patrons.

Hi, Courtney!

Ditto Tulane's comment.  This is how we are set up at the University of Kansas http://lib.ku.edu  Copying our Voyager/Primo expert in case there's more to it.

Hi Courtney,

The Tulane library has a classic catalog interface with Voyager and use Primo for discovery - http://library.tulane.edu/.  With Alma, there is no classic catalog interface, so if you want one you will have to build it:)

Good evening,

At my library, we are in the early stages of preparing for a migration to Alma/Primo. Currently, we have Millennium and maintain both EDS and a "classic catalog" for discovery. Based on what I have heard/read, it sounds like the concept of a "classic catalog" is fairly incompatible with Primo.

In response to a question from my director, I'm wondering if any Primo libraries out there also maintain a traditional OPAC or "classic catalog"?

Thank you in advance for any information!
