Tips for Using UW Libraries Search

  • Try a subject headings search. Click on Advanced Search, then click on the down arrow in a search box to select "in subj." Possible subject headings include: Arctic regions, Arctic regions-Strategic aspectsNatural resources-Arctic regionsClimatic changes-Arctic regionsArctic regions-Politics and governance, and Arctic peoples, or related subject headings such as Inuvialuit Eskimos-Treaties and Russia (Federation)-Foreign relations-Arctic regions.  
  • Use quotation marks to search for a phrase.
  • Combine keywords with the connector "and" to reduce the number of results. Use the connector "or" to increase the number of results, for example: inuit or eskimos. 
  • Use * as the truncation symbol to search for the root word, for example, politic* will retrieve politic, politics, political, etc.
  • Use the facets on the left side of the screen (under Refine My Results) to narrow by: Available online; or Available in the library; or by Publication Date; or by Resource Type (Articles, Print Books, eBooks, Government Documents, Maps, etc.)
