Primo introduction

The Primo Search Bar

Primo is a search service from the Learning Commons that allows you to search (almost) the entire library collection in one place! This includes books, ebooks, newspapers, academic journals, streaming videos, and other documents included in the library collection. Try it out here.


How it works

When you search in Primo, you're really searching through a bunch of different services at once. So rather than separately searching the library catalog for books and the databases for articles, you can search everything at once.
