Getting Started

Spring 2020

Since all classes will meet remotely and the Schaffer Library will be closed, this guide will focus on finding online resources that will be available to you wherever you find yourself.  Be safe, learn much, and reach out to John and Pete if you have any questions or problems as the semester unwinds.

Quick Start

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. (Watch a six minute video on using Primo)
  • Databases link will help you to start looking for journal articles, books, and other types of content by choosing among over 500 databases.. (Watch a five minute video on searching databases)
  • The Journals link lists what journals and newspapers the library 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 (Watch a five minute video on finding journals)

Books in the Catalog

Try: keyword searches relevant to your topic. 

Look at the subjects for a book that is of interest to you.  Follow the subject links to more resources on the topic. Books are organized by subject on the shelves - you can browse for other titles nearby.

With Primoscopes 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).
