MAN Search@UW: What is it?

This guide was created to introduce Search@UW to UW-Manitowoc staff and students. Thank you to librarians at UW-River Falls for creating the template for this guide.

What is Search@UW?


Search@UW, is the library's new search tool.  It will let you search in one place for:

  •  Everything from all the UW Libraries: more than 8 million books, videos, sound recordings, manuscripts and more.
  • Full-text articles from thousands of journals

  • A growing collection of digital materials from MINDS@UW, the UW System's institutional repository, and the University of Wisconsin Digital Collections.



How to Sign In

Sign in with your PRISM/UW-Manitowoc Network Account


 Login menu

Look in the top right corner to select the "Sign in" option (hint:  it's on the red menu bar). 

Students, faculty, and staff should select the first option (see below) and log in using PRISM/network usernames and passwords.  Community users should select the second option and log in using a library card number.


Sign in

When you select “My Account” in the left panel there is a “Personal Settings” button that lets you “Personalize your results”, select “Edit” & you may check a major discipline box to refocus your search results. But remember to deselect it when you are done, otherwise it is saved in your account & will be used whenever you login.

Looking for Something Else?

Look at the second level menu bar for links to other resources.
