Using the My Account option in Primo

Did you know that logging into Primo with your University of Aberdeen username and password will open a range of additional features to help you manage your Library account and record any searching that you do?

This includes being able to see what you currently have on loan, the option to renew books if possible, and also the chance to see what you have borrowed previously. Additionally, you can see the saved details of items you have found when searching in Primo, or the search terms you used to find them. Follow the steps below to learn more about using the My Account feature in Primo.

Log in to Primo
Enter your University of Aberdeen username and password
Once logged in click My Account for further details
Options available in Primo once you log in

By using the My Account feature in Primo you can become more organised in how you go about searching and using our collections, allowing you to record what searching you have done and build up a collection of useful library materials that you can refer back to any time that you login to Primo. The Help option at the top of the Primo screen goes into more detail on these aspects.

For further information on using Primo see our video guides and our three library guides: our general quick guide as well as ones on searching for books or journals.
