Scholarly book example

Type your search terms into the box on the left.  If you type in "cotton AND history" you will get thousands of results, but the book below is one of the first ones on the list.  It is probably a scholarly book since it is published by a university press AND when you look at the record it says "includes bibliographical references and index."  A quick Google search tells me that the author, Giorgio Riello, is a professor of global history and culture at the University of Warwick in the U.K

Riello, Giorgio. Cotton : The Fabric That Made the Modern World. Cambridge ; New York: Cambridge University Press, 2013.


Finding ebooks

Type your keywords in the search box.  You do not have to use the "and" but it's a good habit to get into for library databases in general. 

Use the Refine my Results option on the left hand side of the screen to limit your search to Available online.




Step 1: Click on the title of an ebook you want to look at
Step 2: Login with your UW NetID 

Step 3: Select the online link.  Sometimes there is more than one link but they often go to the same resource
