Tips for Searching the UW Catalog for Books:

  • Often subject headings can be used with geographic designations such as:  ie., nonprofit organizations Australia or fund raising Canada.
  • Use the Advanced Search to limit your search to words in the title or subject, to items at a specific UW library, or by other criteria.
  • Save the records of useful titles; you can then request them and/or email the citation information to yourself.
