Searching Primo

Primo searches the library's holdings, including journal articles and books, whether they are online or in paper.     

Tips for searching Primo: 

  • Login: Login to your library account using your USciences credentials. Searching while logged in enables users to save search queries and search results. Searching while logged in also facilitates interlibrary loan requests. 
  • Keyword Searching: Use only keywords when searching Primo. For example, someone interested in the genomics of mental illness might search: genomics mental illness
  • Research is a Process: Repeat searches using synonyms for your keywords and try both narrower and broader terms. For example: genetic sequencing schizophrenia or genetics depression
  • Filter: Set limits on your search to weed out irrelevant or outdated results and hone in on what you want. For example, set a date-range limit or select a particular format such as "peer-reviewed journals.
  • "Shop": think like a shopper and use the "pin" icon to gather a selection of sources as you would place items in an online shopping cart. Give yourself enough options so that you can go through and select the "best-fit" sources for your search.
