Research

Just starting the research process? 

  1. Check out our new resource, Search@UW.  It’s a powerful tool that helps you discover books, DVDs, CDs, scholarly journal articles and popular magazine or newspaper articles on your topic.
  2. If Search @ UW is too much information, check out the UW Colleges online catalog to look for books, CDs, DVDs or journals by title. Click on More Libraries to add all UW System libraries to your search.
  3. Electronic Articles (many in full text) can be found in our online databases. Not sure which database to use? Try our general database.  Academic Search Complete, ABI/Inform, JSTOR or Newspaper Source Plus cover a wide range of topics.
  4. Check out our Top 10 databases list.
  5. Need More? Try interlibrary loan as a final step. Or try searching WorldCat first and click on the ILLiad button when you find an item you want.
  6. Still have questions? Call the library, 335-5206 or use our online chat reference found on the right hand side of each page.
