At the Portland State University (PSU) Library, we value diversity, equity, and inclusion and have demonstrated this commitment by design with the new, responsive Primo. Designing the new Primo for ease of use for discovery and delivery for 30,000 students was the tantamount motivation for our new Primo launch, fall term 2016. In this session, we will cover why the PSU Library uses the open search field rather than scope selection on the homepage; what is an equitable approach to faceted navigation; and why a “less is more” design approach addresses accessibility and the affective for first generation college students, returning students, and first year experience students.
