Getting Started

from the Library home page:

PRIMO allows you to search across a large portion of the library's collections to explore topics, identify relevant databases, and evaluate the results, all within a single search experience. Includes books, journal articles, and more.

MIND THE SCOPES

- scopes are searchable domains...the default scope is to search everything, books, articles and more. "everything" combines the library catalog (mostly books) and e-resources (mostly articles).

Worldcat is an external scope

Worldcat includes items from libraries all over the world (including our own). Use this scope to search and request books that aren't available here (you must be logged in).

The Journals tab lists what journals and newspapers the libarary has access to. If you have found a citation and want to see if you can get to the full-text, use this tab to search for the journal title.(not the article title)
