Primo Search Tool Unavailable May 29-30


The Primo system, which serves as our library catalog, and also lets you search across most of our research databases and e-collections together, will be unavailable over the Memorial Day weekend, from 3:00 pm on Saturday May 29 until 3:00 pm on Sunday. The system servers are being moved to a different data center.

During this time, you will not be able to check to see which books and DVDs are in the library’s collection, or check your library account. You will be able to use our individual research databases (such as Academic Search Complete, MasterFILE Complete, and Credo Reference). However, the “Find It” feature available in some databases, which allows you to search in one database and retrieve articles from a different database or repository, will not work. Similarly, Google Scholar (through our website) will only be able to provide open-access articles, and none of the licensed content available from our databases. For a complete list of our databases and online collections, see the A-Z Databases list.

(Update, May 30) We have lost off-campus access to our research databases. We were told that this would not happen. We anticipate regaining access after the Alma/Primo system is available, scheduled for 3:00 pm.  We apologize for any inconvenience.
