Your Guide to Primo

Information about the new Primo catalog.

Welcome to Primo

What is Primo?

Primo is the new library search tool used to find items in the Lemieux and Law Libraries and our partner Summit libraries, as well as articles and other electronic resources.

What can Primo find?

Primo scopes allow you to define where your search is performed. 

Lemieux & Law Libraries: Books, e-books, audio-visual recordings, maps, scores, microforms, government documents, special collections, journals, magazines, and newspapers available at Lemieux Library & Law Library.

Summit Libraries: Everything above plus books, journals, and more, in the collections of the 37 member libraries of the Orbis Cascade Alliance.

Books, Articles and More: Everything listed above, as well as some (but not all!) full-text articles from our databases.

Primo is one part of your complete search

Primo does not include all the content from the research databases to which SU subscribes. For discipline-specific searching, use Lemieux Library’s Articles and Databases, and the Law Library's Databases.
