ELS503 Research Skills Guide: 3.2 Primo Search

Learn how to search Primo Search

Primo Search


Primo Search is often a good starting point for education resources. It searches the library catalogue and most of the library databases simultaneously and is a very convenient one-stop-shop for books, ebooks, journal articles, DVDs and theses. It can however retrieve very large numbers of articles from many different disciplines, such as Arts, Business, Education and Science.

You can get to Primo Search from the Library website homepage.

Use your Charles Sturt username and password to log in to Primo Search. You can search without logging in but you need to log in to request items and see your library record.
