Tips for Searching:

Once you've run a search, use the "Refine My Results" options on the left side of the page.  It's a quick way to drill down to the most useful results without paging through a lot of items you're not really interested inOptions often include:

  • Resource type (examples: book, article)
  • Library (example: UW Tacoma)
  • Creation date
  • Language
  • Topic
  • Classification LCC (Library of Congress call numbers)

Use the UW Catalog to locate biographies and autobiographies

  Sample Searches: 

  • (biography or autobiography) and Turing
  • history and fibonacci
  • computer science and history [try this for a MUCH broader search]
