What am I searching in Primo?

Libraries (the default search) finds

  • physical items in campus libraries: books, journals, newspapers, pamphlets, DVDs, CDs, dictionaries, atlases
  • e-books, e-journals and other electronic information sources to which AU subscribes

Articles does a fast search of many journal articles from participating publishers and returns results with full-text online

Everything returns results from both Libraries and Articles searches.

Aberystwyth Research Portal finds AU higher degree theses and research located in the Pure research repository. If you prefer, you can visit the Aberystwyth Research Portal and search it directly.

WHELF Search returns results from WHELF member library catalogues.
