Try a simple search: (By putting the terms in quotes, it forces the system to look for both words together.)
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 in. Options often include:
1. Type your title or topic into UW Libraries Search.
2. In the column on the left that says, "Refine My Results," click on "Availability: Available Online"
3. Under "Resource Type," click "eBooks" (If you don't see the Resource Type you need, click "Show More.")
4. Click "Apply Filters"
5. Select an eBook title and click on the title for the item. Then, you can click on the link available in the "View It" section to access the eBook.
