Microsoft Loop

Microsoft Loop is a collaborative workspace platform that integrates tightly with the Microsoft 365 suite, designed to enhance team productivity and creative processes in a fluid, flexible manner. It allows users to work synchronously and asynchronously across various applications, such as Word, Excel, and Teams, by utilizing Loop components — modular, portable units of content that remain consistent and up-to-date as they are edited across different applications. These components can range from simple task lists to complex project boards, enabling dynamic interaction and real-time updates within documents, emails, chats, and meetings. By fostering an environment where ideas and information flow seamlessly between team members and tools, Microsoft Loop aims to redefine collaboration, making it more intuitive and efficient for the modern hybrid workplace.

General Search Tips

  • Begin your research with an initial search in Primo, and then explore subject-specific databases for more targeted results.
  • Utilize Boolean search terms to enhance your search effectiveness: AND narrows results to those containing both search terms; OR expands results to include either search term (not necessarily both); and NOT eliminates results containing the specified term.
  • Commence with a general search, refining it to become more specific as needed. If you possess a basic understanding of your desired focus, search using a broad term and narrow it down based on available resources.
  • Examine the subject terms and keywords used in the articles you discover. If they appear relevant, consider incorporating them into your search terms. Should your results be too extensive, add supplementary search terms to refine your inquiry further.
  • To search for a specific phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. This ensures the search engine looks for the exact phrase, rather than each word individually. For instance, searching "To be or not to be" will yield that precise phrase, rather than individual words.
  • To locate a word or phrase within an article PDF, e-book, or webpage, use the CTRL and F keys to open a search box that scans the text within a document. Remember to maintain a formal tone and employ an informative writing style in English throughout your research process.
