Primo Search Help: Setting Up Alerts

Search alerts

Set an alert for a saved search to receive an email notification when new resources are added to the Library collection. This can help you stay up to date with new literature. 

You will be notified of new resources that meet the criteria of the search. Applying search techniques can ensure you receive a manageable number of search results in your alerts and that the results are relevant to your discipline area.

Set a search alert

  1. Ensure you are logged into Primo Search.
  2. Run and save a search.
  3. Select the bell icon in the yellow prompt that appears at the top of the page to turn on notifications for this query.
  4. Confirm your email address in the pop-up box and select Save Query.

The yellow prompt will disappear after a few seconds. If you miss it, access your saved searches in My Favourites. Toggle alerts on by selecting the bell icon to the right of each saved search.
