Abstract: Texas A&M University has been a Voyager user since 2000, a MetaLib user since 2006 and a Primo user since summer 2012. When Primo was implemented in production, the library changed the default search type on its website from a Voyager search to a Primo “bucket” search. This presentation will review statistics to determine if usage of the various systems has significantly changed in response to the Primo implementation. Questions to be examined include: 1) based on SFX requests, are users finding more and/or more diverse materials in Primo than they did in MetaLib; 2) MetaLib is still available as the listed “Articles” search – how has the pattern of usage changed; and 3) now that the default search is based on Primo rather than Voyager, has Voyager usage declined or has there been a noticeable change in the types of searches performed.
