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.
