Primo Help



All SUNY Libraries are launching a new library catalog and discovery platform. The new discovery system, called Primo, will offer a single search interface for finding library materials and managing your library account.  SUNY Broome will launch the new system on June 26, 2019.

New and improved features in Primo:

  • New Search Interface

    Primo will provide a more seamless experience as you navigate through library resources as it replaces and combines multiple library products into one system. Primo will replace our legacy catalog as the search interface that connects you to the print and electronic resources provided by the library.  We are happy to provide instruction to help users grow more comfortable with the new system.   
  • Library Account Management

    Library accounts will be simplified and accessed with a single, easy-to-use interface. By signing in, you will be able to view check-outs, renew materials.
  • More Improvements

    Quickly generate citations for articles, books, and more.
    Discover more by virtually browsing our shelves without ever having to leave your home
    Use your SUNY Broome ID and password to renew books.
    Powerful research: search for articles that have cited the article you chose or were cited by the authors of your chosen article.


As with any major system migration, there may be a few unanticipated issues which arise. We ask for your patience, especially during the immediate post-migration period in the summer of 2019, when we will be doing intensive cleanup.
