Find Books

The Library Catalog via Primo is available to the public, though many eBooks are limited to Los Alamos researchers.



Library Catalog via Primo: Search here for all our books, print and electronic.

Three types of search:

  • Basic search with any keywords (from title, author, subject, abstract, various numbers, etc)
  • Advanced search - more precise search, for keywords specifically in title, author, subject, or ISBN.  Can limit by Material type "Books"
  • Browse  - for a "begins with" search - good for finding specific items; includes call number and report number searching.
