How do I search for a particular item format - books or videos or sound recordings?
Search@UW is your one-stop shop for all library resources!
Our new searching system works a little differently from the old one. In the past, you needed to search the right tool for the format. Not anymore! With Search@UW, you do the opposite. You just search for the title or topic you want right from the search box on the library home page, and then use the Refine My Results tools on the left side of the screen. (Resource Type will narrow to books or video, etc.) If you don't see the format you want, click More Options because Search@UW only shows the first 5, and they are ranked by number of results. When you find a result you are interested in, click the Locations tab for information on its shelf location (call number) or links that allow you to request it from another library.
