Using Primo: The Library Discovery Search Tool: Home

Learn how to use the features of Primo, including how to SEARCH EVERYTHING - books, e-books, journal or newspaper articles, how to borrow print materials from the UFindNJ network of academic libraries, and how to access and manage your library account.

What is Primo?

Primo is the NJIT online discovery search tool where you can:

  • Find books, e-books, journal and newspaper articles, theses, dissertations, and videos
  • Manage your research by creating and saving search lists 
  • Manage your library account and renew materials
  • Order books from other NJ libraries in our UFindNJ network

Primo: Search EVERYTHING

Search EVERYTHING to find most but not all print and online materials in the NJIT Library, such as

  • Print Books & E-Books
  • Peer-Reviewed Articles, Journals, & Conference Papers
  • Audio & Video Media
  • Theses & Dissertations
  • Newspaper & Magazine Articles
  • Course Reserves

The following are not included in Search EVERYTHING.  Instead, go directly to the database.
EVERYTHING results will, by default, show resources that are available for checkout and/or available in full-text online. 
EXPAND MY SEARCH (top-left of results page) to see more sources that can be requested through interlibrary loan.
