Coming Soon: UW Libraries Search Beta

Over the past year we have been work­ing with our ven­dor to improve UW Libraries Search beta, largely based on your input.  For the sum­mer quar­ter, we’re launch­ing it as our default search inter­face on the UW Libraries home page, with the inten­tion of get­ting more wide­spread user feed­back.  UW World­Cat will remain avail­able via a tab above the main search box on the Libraries homepage.

Among the new fea­tures and improvements:

  • Cita­tion tools are inte­grated into every record so that you can eas­ily copy and paste a cita­tion from the most pop­u­lar cita­tion styles.

  • Perma­links” that pro­vide sta­ble URLs that you can save or share.

  • Loca­tion fil­ters that allow you to nar­row your results to items in a par­tic­u­lar build­ing, such as Ode­gaard Under­grad­u­ate Library or the Music Library.

  • View only those items that are cur­rently avail­able, rather than items that are already checked out.

We value your feed­back and we’re com­mit­ted to con­tin­u­ing to pro­vide excel­lent ser­vice to sup­port your teach­ing and research.  Please con­tact us with your com­ments and questions.
