  Tips for finding books in the biological sciences

  • Start with keyword searching, but if you get too much, try a subject search
  • Subject terms are controlled vocabulary, e.g., mosses - northwest, pacific. Use the browse feature to find valid subject headings.
  • Use the Advanced Search to limit your search to words in the title,  to items in UW Libraries only, or by other criteria
  • If you need help searching the catalog, use the online chat service, or visit a UW Libraries reference desk
