Abstract :
[en] In February 2013, the ULg Library launched a new portal where the new library website and Primo were closely integrated. Three months before the official launch to the public, Primo FE was shown to library colleagues to get the first professional feedback. Several training sessions were organized for the library staff to focus on the differences between discovery tools and traditional opacs and to explain how our Primo would function (local data vs PCI, pipe process, normalization rules, deduplication, FRBRization...) Then, a survey was organized among the library staff to get their feelings and perceptions about discovery tools in general, and the impacts that such tools have, according to them on the users' habits and searches. Our presentation will explain how our library colleagues (directors, service heads, cataloguers, trainers, circulation staff, e-librarians, secretaries...) felt apprehensive and/or enthusiastic about switching to a discovery tool in general (not specifically Primo).
