Meet Your New ILS!


On July 13, 2021, the library transitioned to a new online catalog, Primo VE, replacing our previous Mango catalog.

All Florida College System (FCS) and State University System (SUS) libraries are implementing Primo VE.

What are the benefits of Primo VE to PBSC?


The new Primo VE discovery service will allow better access and management of the Library’s print, electronic, and digital collections as well as improved discovery of items across all Florida institutions.  Primo VE will change how our existing library catalog looks and functions. 

Other enhanced features include:

Enhanced User Experience: Better integration of the library’s collections along with improved and expanded search capabilities.

Faster: Save time by searching almost all of the library’s collections and beyond in one simple search.

More Discovery: Explore and learn through automatic recommendations, virtual title browsing, and citation trails.

Personalized Search Experience: Log in to save your research preferences. Save your items in your eShelf and easily export records to citation management systems.

On-the-Go: Improved mobile user interface allows researchers to search on their favorite mobile device.

Seamless Integration: Alma and Primo VE work together to provide one user-friendly account for most library needs.
