Library's new search tool - Search@UW

Search@UW includes millions of global and regional e-resources, such as journal articles and e-books, across a wide range of topics and academic disciplines.

What is Search@UW?

Search@UW is a new way of searching for items you may not have known about. It is a search engine and resource discovery tool that provides credible, relevance ranked results from e-resources, databases, indexes, Google Scholar, and other article resources. In your search results, facets appear on the left-hand side of the searchscreen and can help you refine your results.
 
Search@UW is not intended to entirely replace other search tools, and you can still access the native interface of databases and indexes, but we hope that it will be a much-valued addition to your research needs.
 
Some databases and journals allow full-text searching, others include only citation information (e.g., title, author, abstract, etc.), but may be accessible from Search@UW via SFX links.
 
In the near future, Search@UW will also include the Library’s catalog, other UW library catalogs, and digital collections.  We will keep you posted on those updates.

How can I give feedback?

You can provide feedback by contacting the reference librarian or Terri Muraski at tmuraski@uwsp.edu
