Getting Full-Text From Primo Search

Primo Search is the Library’s main search tool, and it searches across most of the online journal databases to which the Library subscribes. You can use Primo Search to find articles, and then follow the prompts to access the full articles in databases.

When you get article results in Primo Search, it should be that the full-text is available online.

  • Many articles will have a Download PDF link as part of the brief record. This should take you directly to the full article.
  • If there is no Download PDF link, you need to:
  1. click on the title, or the View Online link. Both take you to the full record.
  2. in the View Online panel, click on the name of the database. You should be taken to that database, at the record for the article, with a link to the full article.

If you come across an article record in Primo Search where the link to full-text does not work, please notify the Library using the Report broken link to the Library link.
