Find more materials about Gaiman, using PRIMO

PRIMO, the catalog, is the library's general search portal. It will will usually bring up a big and diverse list of results.

You will find this portal on your Canvas course page, as explained in Where's the Library?

Or, use this box:

Find books, articles, videos, & more

Not sure how to start? Try typing the name of the work in quotation marks - even if the title is just one word - followed by the author's last name. 

Example: "the ocean at the end of the lane" gaiman

A few more strategies:

  • Use filters on the left menu to narrow or focus results.
  • Adding more search terms or keywords can change results.
  • Using the example above, the added term is the last word here: "the ocean at the end of the lane" gaiman narnia
  • If searching a film adaptation, try something like this: gaiman stardust film 
  • Search scope defaults to "Everything." 
  • Change the scope to "HCC Catalog" and try the search that way, too.
