Librarians have been slow to fully embrace web-scale discovery tools like Primo. At the City University of New York (CUNY), many libraries are featuring Primo as the default search on their library homepage while preserving links to the catalog and databases. Not surprisingly, with Primo front and center, its use continues to increase. Students like it and quickly learn to navigate its basic features. This session will highlight why using and teaching Primo should no longer be seen as merely an option. We will touch on some of its inherent weaknesses and its many benefits. We will also review CUNY’s use of SFX statistics to understand how Primo is accessed.
