There are several ways to search for books and e-books in the library collection:

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  • Filter: Set limits on your search to weed out irrelevant or outdated results and hone in on what you want.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.

Search Google Scholar

Google Scholar is Google’s tool for searching scholarly literature.

  • Just search using the field below. In your search results, look for the Find Full Text USciences link next to individual results and click it to access full text via our e-resource subscriptions. (The link should only appear next to items available in our collection.)
  • If you do not see the Find Full Text USciences link next to an item, look beneath the citation for a blue chevron sign (>>and click on it.  You may then see a link that says GetIt@USciences that can help you find the full text of the article.

Important Note: Google Scholar's search results are not exhaustive, so do not assume that you have found "everything" on your topic via Scholar. It is just one tool to employ in your searches.
