Library Search Interface - Primo: The Basics

Information about the new library search interface

What is Primo?

In mid-July through August, the Health Sciences Library will roll out a new search interface called Primo that will replace several existing services, including the discovery search, online catalog, citation match capabilities, and ebook search.

Primo will look different than current services yet still allow Upstate students, faculty, and staff to discover and access the same databases, journals, and books. It will also provide a more seamless experience as you navigate through library subscribed resources, as it replaces and combines multiple library products into one system.

Primo will also allow the campus community to request and monitor items checked out from the Health Sciences Library online.
