To see only full text resources in Primo, be sure to use the "Available online" filter on the left side of the screen. Click here for instructions.


Full text items in Primo will display an Available Online link. Click the link (or the item's title) to open up the library record page.

On the library record page, scroll down to the "View Online" section and look under where it says "Full text availability" to see a link to a database. That is where the item's full text will be available (via the database listed).

Click the database link to access the full text (it will open in a new window).

You may notice "multiple sources exist" next to an item. This means that the item is available through more than one database. Any of those links should work, but if you have problems with one, try a different one!
