Primo Search Tips
With our chosen keywords, here are some hints on using Primo Search:
It defaults to a keyword search. If you type in marine conservation, it will search for those words separately (ie: marine AND conservation). To search for a specific phrase, use inverted commas - "marine conservation".
The truncation symbol is the asterisk (*). Typing in conserv* will search for conserve, conserves, conservation, conservationist etc.
When you find a journal article result, click on the Available online link and follow the prompts to get to the full article.
If you get too many results in a search, try going to Advanced Search and changing your search so that you are searchingin the Title or in the Subject (rather than in Any Field).
Use the refiners on the left of the results screen to narrow your results. There are refiners for things like Resource Type, Dates, and Topics. If you can't see a refiner that you might want, within a list, click on the Show More link at the bottom of the list.
Use Advanced Search for multiple search lines and extra limiters.
