Use Primo to find books and other electronically accessible resources

Using Primo

Primo has three tabs to help you quickly limit what you're searching:

  • Search: This tab searches books, journal articles and all other resources available through this search tool, including: e-Books, journal titles, maps, videos, audio recordings, government documents, music scores, newspaper articles, reviews, and conference proceedings
  • Books + : This tab searches books, e-Books, journal titles, maps, videos, audio recordings, government documents, and music scores available to University of Guelph, University of Waterloo, and Wilfrid Laurier University libraries
  • Articles + : This tab searches journal articles, newspaper articles, reviews, and conference proceedings available through many of the library's electronic subscriptions. For more information on searching in the new interface, watch the short Primo video tutorial from the uWaterloo Library
