UvA-Library new search engine

17 Apr

The new search engine of the UvA Library has been definitively launched yesterday. Primo (the registered name that library automation provider Ex Libris has chosen for the search engine) is replacing the Digital Library, that has been used at the UvA for the last 9 years.

With one search query it is now possible to search for both print and e-books, articles from e-journals, and publications of UvA-staff (belonging to UvA-DARE, the Digital Academic REpository), many with full-text access. The search results can easily be refined by resource type, UvA-location, year, language, topic, etc.

A number of e-resources, subscribed to by the Library but not (yet) covered by Primo, are listed on the Primo search screen. If you can’t find what you’re looking for please use the Find Databases option (see box).

Should you need help with using the new search engine, please ask the librarian (UBAcoach).
