Primo In A Nutshell

Primo is a library search engine that pulls articles, videos, images, theses, and more, from databases and the library catalog.

Use Primo To:

  • Explore topics
  • Identify relevant databases
  • Find specific articles

Search Tips

Refine your search terms using a specific, targeted word or phrase. Vague searches will return too many results, while specific searches will give you narrower, more targeted results.

Click "Advanced Search" to get even more specific results.

Narrow search results using the selectors in the left sidebar. You can narrow by resource type, discipline, publication date, subject terms, language, library location, and more. You can also choose to show only physical or online items, or peer-reviewed content.

Keep in mind...

While Primo pulls from many different resources, it cannot access them all. Once you've narrowed your topic, check subject-specific databases to dig deeper.
