Using the e-Shelf
Store relevant books in the e-Shelf, located at the top right in Primo. Sign in first by clicking on the Sign In link. If you don't sign in, you can add items to the Temporary e-Shelf but they will disappear after your session.
After you have signed in, check the box next to the book title to add an item to your e-Shelf.
View items in your e-Shelf by clicking on the e-Shelf link (top of screen)
There are options to e-mail or print, to export the records to use in a citation manager, and to organize your e-Shelf with folders.
You can add tags to each book. Tags help you organize books of interest in a certain area so you can find them again. All tags you add are searchable by everyone.
When you are looking at a book record, the option to add tags is just below the book title in the search results. You need to be signed into your account first before you can add or edit tags. Click on the Reviews & Tags link. A reviews & tags area opens up beneath the link. In this area, click on Add New Tag.
You can find tagged items two ways. Above the Primo search box, there is a Tags link. Click on this to see a list of all tags. You can click on a tag in the list to see items with that tag.
You can also do a search for a tag. Below the Primo search box, choose to search User Tags from the drop-down menu instead of the default Full Record. Your search will bring up all items with the tag you search for.
Saved searches and alerts
You can save Primo searches and rerun them, and create alerts that let you know when your search finds new items. To do this, click on Save Search and Alerts at the very bottom of the search results, in the left menu. You need to be signed into your E-Shelf first. You can create an e-mail alert or an RSS feed of your search results.
A window will pop up that asks you to name your search and choose whether you want an e-mail alert or not.
