College 101: Find Books, Media, & Articles

UW Libraries Search

How to Find Books & Media

Enter search terms in the purple search box above and click Search to find books and other media. Use the filters in the left sidebar to limit by resource type (for example, books), library (for example, UW Bothell/CCC Library), and more.

You may have to try different words to find what you need. For example, if you're looking for books about college success, try entering different, related search terms such as:

  • first year college
  • college success
  • college study strategies

Once you find an available item, write down the call number and location:

If the Campus Library doesn't have what you need, you can request to have materials delivered to Bothell from other UW Libraries.

If you need help finding books or media, don't hesitate to ask us!
