Primo Central

Click here to access Primo Central

Primo Central is a vast cross-disciplinary index containing millions of journal articles, e-books and more from a wide range of information providers, available in a single search. While the Primo Central index does not include content from every information provider (e.g. EBSCOhost databases are not indexed, although much of their content can be found using Primo Central), it provides a quick and easy starting point for your research.

You can also use the Primo search interface to cross-search many of the library’s subscription databases. The drop-down menu in the search box allows you to select sets of databases chosen for their relevance to particular subjects or regions. You can also create your own sets of resources to search using the Find Databases link.
