There are various ways to search for articles from the library. Using the Primo Advanced Search link below is an excellent starting place and may be all that you need. View the two short videos at the top of the right column for a demo by your librarian on using the Advanced Search in Primo for articles. Question?

Primo Advanced Search allows for more nuanced searching and limiting by material type, language, date range, and more. The two short videos in the right column below demonstrate running a search for articles, limiting to peer-reviewed journals, using boolean operators (library jargon for AND, OR, NOT) and other search tips as well as accessing and downloading articles from the search results.
