And…Another Primo Glitch

image from Wikipedia

Over the weekend, requesting options stopped showing up in Primo. 

Insert collective sigh here. We are working with the vendor to solve the issue.

For now, your best option is to use resources in Databases A-Z and then email the library your article request at (Please note that the University is closed on Jan. 30 for extreme weather.) Or just keep track and request when that feature returns soon.

We’ll post again when the issue is resolved. We are really sorry for the inconvenience!

New Feature in Primo

image from Giphy

If you’re researching in Primo (and we hope you are), we updated and moved the form for placing a “blank” Interlibrary Loan (ILL) request. It’s now located on the top toolbar and is called Cite & Go!

You’d need this if you have a citation that you can’t readily find in Primo. All is not lost! Just copy and paste a few pieces of information, and a librarian will find it and request it on your behalf!

Then you’ll get notified when it’s here (or get a PDF in your email). And, in case you haven’t seen, you can track all your ILL requests in your Primo account, see due dates, and soon request ILL renewals as well.
