    Your Space in Primo

    This section contains topics associated with your personal space and settings in Primo.

    Why Should I Sign In?

    When you sign into Primo, you are able to do the following:
    • Set preferences for your current and future sessions. You can set your preferences so that they reflect the way you usually search, and save them for future sessions.
    • Add items you found permanently to your Favorites. You can save items for future use.
    • Access external licensed resources. The institution offers licensed information resources to its users. Once you sign in, you can search and retrieve items from these additional resources.
    • Use library services. You can benefit from library services such as requesting or recalling items.

    Why Should I Sign Out?

    You should sign out of Primo so that your searches remain private and your personal settings and favorites are not tampered with by anyone else.

    My Library Card

    My Library Card enables you to view the contents of your library card and perform library services, such as renewing a book or canceling a request. In addition, it lets you define your personal Primo settings. To access My Library Card, place your cursor over the Sign-In area at the top of any page to display the My Library Card link.
