What is the new Library Search system?

Our new library system, powered by Primo, allows you to search our collections right from our home page. The library catalog, our list of electronic journals, and our electronic databases can all be searched from the same starting point.

What do the search options mean?

And the Buttons?

We want you to have access to the resources and support services you need quickly and conveniently. The four buttons located beneath the search bar are designed to help you learn about our research support services, connect with faculty librarians for in-depth help, and get direct access to specialized sources if you need them.

Sign in for Improved Results

While you can search our library at any time, if you sign in to the library service, you will be presented with results tailored to IUP's holdings, and you'll have access to many other features like information about your library account (for instance, what items you've checked out), as well as a favorites area where you can save articles, books, and citations as you research.

To sign in, you'll need to first open the search page. If you are at the library home page, just click the Search button (you don't even need any search terms). 

Once the search page opens, the login prompt is found in the upper right corner of the screen. Clicking that will take you to the IUP Single Sign-On screen, where you can enter your IUP network username and password. 

Safari iPhone Users

If you access our Library Search via Safari on the iPhone, you may get a warning that says This form is not secure. Are you sure you want to submit it? This warning appears because the form sends the keywords you enter to the search engine without encryption. However, rest assured that you can safely submit your search.
