Primo searching: Advanced Search

Tips and tricks for using the Primo discovery interface.

Find the shortest path to the information you want!

Primo can help you find what you are looking for, but the search methods can differ from the Classic Catalog many of us are used to.  Here we hope to help you find the shortest path to the information you want. 

To find a specific book title or author there are a few ways to get to the item you are looking for.  You can of course search for the title and use the filters to narrow down your results, but here are some other options to find a specific title as quickly as possible.

Advanced Search

Advanced search is a great option to search by title, author, or subject. Just select the drop down on the left.

You can also select categories for all three lines of the Advanced search screen to narrow you results further.
