While Search@UW is designed to be more user-friendly than other research tools, there are a few tips to keep in mind.
You can find a book or the full-text of an article by following these steps:
Click on the View It tab and then click on the link for the full-text article. Do not click on the “Get it” tab. This is used to request an article through interlibrary loan.
Click on the Get It tab to see where the item is available. If it is available at UW-Sheboygan, write down the call number and find it on the shelves. If the book is at another campus, you will see the campus where it is located and whether it is available. The links for requesting a book are also located within the Get It tab.
If you are having trouble narrowing your results or are searching for a known item, using the Advanced search might be helpful. You can limit your search to title, author or subject. You can also limit by language, date and the "Basic Search" scopes (Everything, Articles, UW Colleges Books and Media, UW System Books and Media and Digital Collections.)
