Project Starter Database

Primo Search

  • Primo Search emulates the ‘simple search’ experience of Google. However, instead of searching across the entire open Web as Google does, Primo searches the majority of the authoritative electronic and print resources subscribed to and purchased by by the UF Libraries (including Library Catalog records for books, etc. shelved in the local collections).
  • After you enter your search, you can enter additional search terms, limit results to articles with full text, to books in the library, etc.
