Searching with Primo VE

What is Primo VE?

Primo VE is a very powerful, single-search discovery tool that allows you to research your topic or search for a single known item with equal ease.

What am I searching?

Everything This will search all Augustana-owned physical items and some electronic items (ebooks, Augustana electronic-based publications) plus articles from databases plus all physical items owned by other I-Share libraries.
ALiCat only This will search all Augustana-owned physical items and some electronic items (ebooks, Augustana electronic-based publications). ALiCat = Augustana Library Catalog
All I-Share libraries This searches the catalogs of all libraries within the I-Share consortium. Most items that are accessible to Augustana students, faculty, and staff are physical items. However, there are some ebooks and ebook collections that are owned by CARLI (the Consortium of Academic Research Libraries in Illinois), and as such, are available to patrons from any of the I-Share libraries. (Ebooks are not available to public patrons.) Restrictions on ebooks and other electronic or streaming materials tend to be due to restrictions from the publishers from whom libraries purchase access.
Articles only This will search the databases to which Augustana subscribes for primary- and secondary-source articles.
Tredway Library Resources This will search all Augustana-owned physical items and some electronic items (ebooks, Augustana electronic-based publications) plus articles from databases
