What is Primo?
Primo is the new SUNY-wide discovery system that will replace the current method for locating books, journals, and articles on the Library web site.
What can you do?
With Primo, you can not only locate items accessed through the Library (journals, books, and electronic books) but also search across Library resources, request items from other libraries, and check your patron record.
How can you find out more?
  • You can check out introductory videos to the many Primo features here.
  • This handy flyer tells you more about Primo features.
  • The Library will host drop-in sessions in which you can see Primo in action and ask whatever questions you may have:
    • Monday, June 17 2:00pm to 3:00 pm - Room 234 on the second floor of the Library
    • Thursday, June 20 11:00 am to 12:00 noon - The Richard D. Levere Conference Room
