Primo Search: Essentials

undefined

What is Primo?

Primo is the library search tool used to find items in the UHMC Library and its partner UH Libraries, as well to access articles and other electronic resources.

 

 

 

 

What is included in each scope?

Primo scopes allow you to define how broadly your search is performed. You can select a scope from drop-down menu right of the search box, or from the pop-up options that appear once you start searching. 

 

 

Everything (articles, books, media): Books, e-books, multimedia, and articles from some library databases and scholarly open source collections (EBSCO articles and e-books are not included in this scope. For a wider range of articles, be sure to conduct an additional search using the EBSCO scope). 

Articles Only:  Articles from some library databases and scholarly open source collections (EBSCO articles are not included in this scope. For a wider range of articles, be sure to conduct an additional search using the EBSCO scope). 

EBSCO articles : Everything in the WOU and Summit list above, as well as articles published by journals, magazines, and newspapers, broadcast transcripts, book reviews, and much more.

 

WorldCat, Primo, and research databases are elements of a complete searchPrimo is one part of your complete search

Primo includes records from the various research databases to which WOU subscribes. However, searching appropriate databases directly can provide more thorough and accurate results than relying solely on Primo. Select from Hamersly Library’s Databases by name, subject/discipline, type/content, or description keyword.

Use WorldCat to search beyond the holdings of Summit libraries. You can request materials from libraries around the world through Interlibrary Loan (ILL).
