The James P. Boyce Centennial Library is pleased to announce that Primo is now available for the iPhone and other mobile devices with a modern web browser. Features include instant search of millions of items, including the entire print collection of the library, detailed availability information, and the ability to place ILL requests. We also want to remind our patrons that EBSCOhost Mobile is available as well, giving you access wherever you are to our most popular databases, such as ATLA, OT and NT Abstracts, and the Christian Periodical Index. To learn more, visit our Boyce Library Mobile page.
Boyce Centennial Library is pleased to announce the availability of Inter-Library Loan (ILL) functionality in Primo as of today. We know this is a feature many of you have requested and have been eagerly anticipating. To request an item for ILL, click the “Services” tab in Primo, and you’ll see the ILL option. Click it, fill out the resulting form, and we will work to find you a copy of whatever it is you need.
If you don’t see the option to request an item via ILL, Boyce Library has a digital or print copy of the item, or it is held at Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary’s library, where you can check out a copy using your Southern Seminary Shield Card.
Boyce Centennial library is happy to announce the availability of the Primo Central Index in our Primo Discovery System. Primo Central provides instant access to hundreds of databases in addition to the full print collection of the library.
Primo Central can be searched from the “Books and More” tab of the Primo search interface. Books and More gives you three options for refining your search. By default, it is set to search everything available to the library via Primo Central and in print. If you want to refine your search to include only items held in print, select “Print Resources” from the drop-down menu. If you want to search only Primo Central’s index, select “Online Resources” from the drop down menu.
Of course, you can still search individual databases or groups of databases by clicking on the Databases by Subject tab. For more information about Primo Central, here is a short video.
