Primo is a new search tool at the Washington University Libraries. It provides one-stop access to the Libraries' collections by searching across hundreds of catalogs, indexes, and databases. It does not include MOBIUS (although it links to MOBIUS like our Classic Catalog) and it does not include the Becker Medical Library Catalog. It does include many articles from Web of Science and Scopus and many other databases but does not seem to include MathSciNet or arXiv. I will post more about coverage and use as I learn more. More info.
