As well as using Primo Search to find known items, you can also use it to find information on a topic.
For example for the topic cardiac disease in Australia, our search in Primo Search could be:
"cardiac disease" australia*
|Note #1||In Primo Search, our two terms are combined with AND. So our search is effectively:
"cardiac disease" [AND] australia*
|Note #2||The double quotation marks force the enclosed words to be searched for as a phrase.|
|Note #3||The asterisk forces a search of all terms that start with australia-
(that is, australia, australian, australia's etc).

If you are getting too many results, and they don't seem relevant, try going to Advanced Search. You can then:
If you are STILL not satisfied with the results, try searching directly in a relevant database. See Databases.
