Primo VE is a discovery tool that allows users to find a library’s physical and electronic resources. There is a feature available in Primo VE called Collection Discovery, which allows libraries to create and present visually appealing, browsable collections of resources to library users. We will share how the University at Albany, as well as other libraries, are using Collection Discovery to highlight their collections and curate resources for their students and faculty.
