The project team from Ex Libris consists of the following members:
Georg Heiming, Ex Libris, Germany (Project Manager)
Lee Smith, Ex Libris, UK (working on Coventry Primo implementation for Ex Libris)
Leonard Wright, Ex Libris, UK (working with Lee on Coventry Primo implementation for Ex Libris)

Engagement with end users has already started with a survey to consider potential names for the CU Primo product when it is launched. Once the initial version of Primo has been made available usability testing will be carried out and the results of this testing will be used to inform changes that will be made to make the interface more intuitive. During the survey about the name for Primo, respondents were asked if they would like to volunteer to take part in usability testing over the summer and 40 people volunteered, leaving their details so they can be contacted about taking part in the testing.
