Think of Primo as the "Google" of library resources. Primo searches almost all of the library's databases and catalogs simultaneously, along with a selection of open-source eBooks and articles from trusted web sources. The results list will contain a wide variety of books, eBooks, videos, images, and articles from newspapers, magazines, and scholarly peer-reviewed journals. Websites are NOT included in Primo results.
The "Basic Search" box lets you search for articles, books, e-books, encyclopedia entries, etc. all at once.
The "All Resources" drop-down arrow lets you search the library catalog (books and videos), article databases, and Course Reserves separately.
When you get your results, use the “Refine my results” filters to further specify a publication date, resource type, etc.
The "Advanced Search" screen gives you more options for specifying your search (title keyword, subject keyword, course instructor, etc).
EXAMPLE--the following search will retrieve results for books at our library that contain "women" and "science" in the title.
