ARTD 330 - Interior Foundations: Start Library Search

Search in Primo

To find information on a designer, begin your library search in Primo. This is the broadest search you can do in the library. Search by: 

  • Designer Name (Hint: Try all variations of their name)
  • Designer Style (Hint: Sometimes general design books will reference your designer)

You should find books, articles, reference entries and more! Hint: Once you've found one book, chances are good that you will find others like it right next to it on the shelf. Try the Virtual Browse feature in Primo to see what's there.
