Primo is the discovery tool at the CT State Library - our library catalog. It includes print, electronic, and digital resources at the Hartford location, as well as resources at the Middletown Service Center and the Connecticut Library for Accessible Books (CT LAB) (formerly the Library for the Blind and Physically Handicapped, LBPH). Primo is a one-stop location to search for books, articles, and more!
Search as a Guest
If you do not have a library card, you can search Primo as a guest. When searching as a guest, you will not see the circulation rules for items held at the library. Please contact us to inquire about the availability of our materials.
This is a little tricky - it depends on how you choose to search.
CONSULS was replaced by Primo on March 30, 2017. Primo allows you to search all institutions in the CSCU Library Consortium. However, you can limit your search to the CT State Library. For a search experience that is similar to using a card catalog, please see the Browse Search tab.
Select CSL Catalog from the search bar drop down menu to search the electronic and print holdings of the State Library (including the Middletown Service Center and LBPH).
If you wish to search beyond the CSL Catalog, you can select other options in the search box drop down menu. Please note that some resources may only be available within the library that owns or subscribes to them.
If you are interested in Middletown Library Service Center (MLSC) materials, please contact the Division of Library Development (DLD).
