The University of Tennessee recently acquired Primo Central and created a "blended" search tab combining both PCI and local resources. This presentation will explain how we modified resource types from both of these data sources and then synthesized the resource types to appear together in the resource type facet. I'll first go over an explanation of Primo Central resource types, followed by a general explanation of local resource types and how they are created. Next I'll describe the problem we faced in reconciling our existing local resource types with the seemingly inflexible Primo Central resource types, including the "lightbulb moment" we had that helped define a new philosophical approach to re-configuring resource types. Finally, I'll go into the Back Office changes that are necessary for making this happen (Normalization Rules, Mapping tables, Code tables, etc.). Even if a site does not employ Primo Central and/or a blended search option, the presentation should be helpful for gaining understanding in how to make changes to both local and PCI resource types.
