Finding Materials with PRIMOSearch

PRIMOSearch is a search and discovery tool that identifies both local and remote resources (books, audiovisual materials, articles and more). It presents search results in a relevancy-ranked list. Begin searching on our homepage using the single search box titled ALL and refine results with the advanced search feature. While some databases and e-journals provide full-text, others include only the citation information, giving you what is needed to make an interlibrary loan (ILLiad) request.

Library Card

  • Currently employees must use their employee ID to check out materials from the UIW Library. 

Borrowing Materials

  • UIW employees (UIW, IWHS, SACHS) may borrow eight books for three weeks. 
  • Employees may borrow three audiovisual items for 7 days (multi-part titles are counted separately).

Borrowing Materials from Other Libraries (Interlibrary Loan)

  • Interlibrary loan (ILL) is a service that allows UIW users to borrow books and obtain copies of articles not available in the UIW Library from other libraries throughout the United States. Our interlibrary loan service is meant to provide UIW users with the necessary materials for their education and research.
  • The UIW Library has a reciprocal service that lends books and provides copies of articles to users at other U.S. libraries. The provisions of the U.S. Copyright Law and individual library policies regulate both lending and borrowing of library materials.
