Non-fiction books can provide both an overview and indepth analysis of a topic, event or person. Many books will include footnotes and bibliography that can lead you to other research/writings on the topic including primary sources.
See the bibliography Seattle Neighborhood History for a list of books and articles written about neighborhoods. This bibliography will be downloaded when you click on the link. To locate any titles, search UW Libraries Search for the title of the book or journal.
If you'd like to expand your search to items held outside the UW and Summit library system, we recommend that you use UW WorldCat. UW WorldCat is especially useful when you want to search as broadly as possible for a topic or when you are seeking a relatively rare item that isn't likely to be available at the UW. It also facilitates borrowing books from other libraries.
