UW Libraries Search Tips

Use Advanced Search to search by title, creator/author, or subject.  You can also limit by publication date, material type, and language.

Use Browse Search to browse by subjects, creators/authors, titles, and Library of Congress call numbers.  Results are sorted alphabetically.

Tips for Searching:

Once you've run a search, use the "Refine My Results" options on the left side of the page.  

  • If you're looking for streaming video, be sure to select "eAudio & eVideo" under the Resource Type menu on the left side of the screen.
  • Once you find the title you're looking for, it will be labeled as and  if it's available for online streaming.

UW Libraries Search - Streaming Video Example

There are two primary ways to find streaming videos that the UW Libraries has licensed for UW and Cascadia students, faculty and staff:

1. Check the Streaming Video Research Guide for UW-Licensed collections. This guide gathers in a single place all of the major collections of streaming video that UW Libraries has licensed for educational use. If you are new to streaming video, a good place to start is in one of the large Alexander Street Press collections, organized by subject area.


2. Use UW Libraries Search to search for content. Online/streaming video will have an “eVideo” resource type icon and it will say “Online access” just below the cataloging information.

Faculty - online video URLs for course sites

1. To find the stable URL of online videos you can add to your Canvas course guides, find the film you want students to view in UW Libraries Search.

Click on “Access Options” and then “Share / Save”


2.  Use the "Share/Save" dropdown menu and then click on “Permalink”


3. Copy the Permalink, which you can post inside your Canvas site. This link will take students directly to the item in UW Libraries Search.
