Using Primo: Requesting Items on Primo

Requesting Items on Primo

Performing ILL Requests on Primo

For this example we will be searching for the book Life in the time of Cholera by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. To begin we would need to type the title of the book into the search box, and click submit.

After we click search it should redirect us to our results. Notice the filters we have on the left-hand side. These can help narrow your search. For this example, we are going to narrow our results to only books held by library. As for the type of material, we only want books, audio-visual, and audio. After we select our filters we will click Apply Filters.

This narrowed our search tremendously, and our filters, on the left, can be toggled on and off by clicking the X’s. We see now that there are only 3 results to choose from.

We specifically want the book, but we see that there are multiple locations for the book.When we click on that result we see that there are two editions to choose from we will click on the first one.

To request this book we simply click the Sign in link. This should ask us to log into MyNMSU.

Once this is done it will redirect us back to the previous page where we can then click Request.

This should bring up a form asking us to designate a pick up location and deadline (“Not Needed after).Once this is all completed we can then click send request.

Please allow 1 – 2 weeks for the materials to arrive.
