Kemp Library's online catalog Primo is a good place start your search for Information.

What Can I Use Primo For?

You can use Primo just like any online library catalog:

  • Search for print items like books, magazines, and journals that ESU owns or subscribes to.
  • Search for and access full text ebooks and online articles that ESU owns or subscribes to.
  • Request items ESU does not own or subscribe to. Request books and articles through our Interlibrary Loan Service.

How do I search Primo?

Begin typing your search terms into the Primo search box. Primo will try and predict what you are looking for and where to find it. If you are looking for books, articles or other items that ESU owns or subscribes to at the Library, you would want to choose “Library Catalog” during your search. You can also filter your results to "Kemp Library" to show only the items that Kemp Library owns or has access to.

How do I find articles?

You can search for articles from all publishers in Primo right now.

You can also go to direct links to database collections and search for articles in them on the Databases Page
