Primo is the library search tool used to find items in Hamersly Library and our partner Summit libraries, as well to access articles and other electronic resources.
Primo scopes allow you to define how broadly your search is performed. You can select a scope in the drop-down menu right of the search box, or by selecting your desired scope under the search box on the main library home page.
WOU: Books, e-books, audio-visual recordings, maps, scores, microforms, government documents, special collections, and the journals, magazines, and newspapers available from Hamersly Library.
WOU and Summit: Everything in the WOU list above, plus the holdings of academic libraries in the Pacific Northwest.
WOU, Summit, and Articles, etc.: Everything in the WOU and Summit list above, as well as articles published by journals, magazines, and newspapers, broadcast transcripts, book reviews, and much more.
Primo includes records from the various research databases to which WOU subscribes. However, searching appropriate databases directly can provide more thorough and accurate results than relying solely on Primo. Select from Hamersly Library’s Databases by name, subject/discipline, type/content, or description keyword.
Use WorldCat to search beyond the holdings of Summit libraries. You can request materials from libraries around the world through Interlibrary Loan (ILL).
