Finding Books through the Library

The library's "catalog" (Primo) is a good place to start for finding books on any topic. Follow these steps for a Primo Quick Search for books:

1. To search the catalog go to the library homepage and type your keywords into the search box: 


2. The default for Primo Quick Search is to search Everything. To make finding books easier, select UHMC Library from the drop down:


3. Click Search

4. On the search results page, you will see book and video titles listed (when available). The enter column displays your search results in relevancy-ranked order. To tweak your results to see just books or videos, select the Resource Type from the Tweak your Results column. 


5. If you tweak your results for books only, you will get search results for books in print and ebooks. To find book in print, select Held by library from the Tweak my results column.  


TIP: Use Subject Headings to find books

Subject headings allow you to search library catalogs for materials on a particular topic. Often subject heading searching can be more productive than searching by simple keywords. Listed here are some subject headings relevant to CR. To search subject headings, use the advanced search function of the UHMC Library Catalog (Primo Search).
