Haifa University library director Oren Weinberg: OneSearch is integrated with the Index of Hebrew Periodicals (IHP), enabling our users to receive search results from this index as well as from our local collections.
aifa University Library now offers Ex-Libris-developed OneSearch with the Primo library search software.
Primo enables libraries to offer their users branded discovery and delivery services that reflect local emphases and needs. With Primo Central, users will be able to simultaneously search in locally managed collections and global e-content, with the search results blended into a single relevance-ranked list.
Haifa University library director Oren Weinberg said "Before using Primo, our users were obliged to search for print, electronic and digital items from a complex range of interfaces. Our users can now obtain credible and authoritative search results via a single interface."
Weinberg added: “We have implemented a search interface which is available in both Hebrew and English. OneSearch is integrated with the Index of Hebrew Periodicals (IHP), enabling our users to receive search results from this index as well as from our local collections.
We are looking forward to receiving feedback from users as the academic year progresses.” The University of Haifa was one of the first Ex Libris customers in Israel.
Haifa University was established in 1963 under the joint auspices of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and the Haifa Municipality. 17,000 students are currently studying toward a first, second or doctoral degree.
