History Since 1500

Finding Books in the UMD Library and Beyond

Our new library system, Primo, is a "discovery tool" that pulls up a lot of material for any search: books, articles, other materials, which may be available to you here (or through the library) or may simply exist elsewhere in the world.   


To search for books at the Claire T. Carney Library, you must follow a few steps:

1) Choose Advanced Search.

 

2) On the next screen, click on the UMD Collections Only tab and select Books from the drop-down menu

 

 

If you identify a book you wish to use that is not in the UMass Dartmouth collection, you may request a copy on Interlibrary Loan.  How long will this take?  Usually a week or less, but the time depends on the lending library and we cannot promise a specific delivery speed.  There is no emergency overnight interlibrary loan, so think ahead!
