Search WorldCat for Books
Especially useful when you want to search as broadly as possible for a topic or when you are seeking a relatively rare item that isn't likely to be available at the UW. It also facilitates borrowing books from other libraries.
Tips for searching WorldCat for Books related to government:
Try a keyword search: government and your topic. For example, the search for "government and spotted owl" will give you dozens of results. Use the choices in the left sidebar to limit the search. Choosing Washington (State) under Author leads to a small list of books by government authors.
Use the Topic limit in the left sidebar to narrow the scope of your search. In the example search for government and spotted owl, choosing the topic agriculture leads to the publication from the Washington Forest Practices Board.
