Getting Started

Fall 2020

This guide will focus on finding online resources that will be available to you wherever you find yourself.  While Schaffer Library will re-open for the fall term, this guide will primarily help you succeed in this course while working remotely.

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).
