Primo PR


All SUNY Libraries are launching a new library catalog and discovery platform. The new discovery system, called Primo, will offer a single search interface for finding library materials and managing your library account.  SUNY Broome Library will launch the new system on June 26, 2019.

New and improved features in Primo:

  • New Search Interface

    Primo will provide a more seamless experience as you navigate through library resources as it replaces and combines multiple library products into one system. Primo will replace our legacy catalog as the search interface that connects you to the print and electronic resources provided by the library.  We are happy to provide instruction to help users grow more comfortable with the new system.   

  • Library Account Management

    You will able to log into your Library account to view check-outs and renew materials.

  • More Improvements

    Quickly generate citation for articles, books, and more.
    Discover more by virtually browsing our shelves without ever having to leave your home
    Use your SUNY Broome ID and password to renew books. 


As with any major system migration, there may be a few unanticipated issues which arise, so we ask for your patience, especially during the immediate post-migration period in the summer of 2019, when we will be doing intensive cleanup.

ART 106: Introduction to Three-Dimensional Design Display

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

What would your dream home look like? Students in Rich Harrington’s ART 106: Introduction to Three-Dimensional Design course explored this concept in depth, and their creations are now on display in the Library's lobby through May 17, 2019.

Students were each given the same pre-made cardboard box and, through a process of defining the characteristics of their ideal living space, were required to construct a model of their dream home. Certain architectural details including windows, doors, a two-car garage and a chimney were required. The style of the home was left to the students’ interpretation based on research they conducted of various architectural periods and styles.

Each student was also required to situate their dream home on a scaled plot of land. The requirement here was to include a social gathering area and landscaping of their choice. Optional additions were pools, ponds and gardens. The location of their home was also left up to the students including urban, suburban, rural, coastal, etc. Materials to be used were open with the focus being on recycled/reused materials.
