Primo Search Help: Can't Find What You Need?


If there are no results matching your search try these suggestions:

  • Check your spelling
  • 'Remove' some search words
  • Are you including too many keywords? Try fewer search words & choose the most relevant ones
  • Searching for a particular resource? Try entering just the title, instead of using the full citation
  • Remove any punctuation
  • If you're still not finding results, contact the Library


Primo retrieves resources across all discipline areas. Searching directly within our Library databases may help you find more relevant resources. 

Navigate to the library databases using the white menu option at the top of Primo, or from the Library website beneath the For Study mega menu.
