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.
  • Databases tab will help you to start looking for journal articles. 
  • The Journals tab 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)


 

  • Quick Links get you to your Interlibrary loan account (Illiad).
