Use the Refine My Results links on the left side to narrow down your list of sources
Call numbers classify books by subject and can help you to locate additional resources. Browsing the shelf where you found one book can lead to finding others on the same subject.
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.)
The best use of Search@UW is when you need a large number or a variety of resources. It is also helpful when your research question spans a number of different subjects, making it difficult to choose a single-subject database.
However, not all database content is available through Search@UW. There will also be many instances in which a single-subject database will have enough content that a user will not need the multiple resources connected to Search@UW. In these cases, a single database search may be easier and more efficient.
