Federated Searching via Search@UW

Search@UW provides an integrated search and discovery experience across a wide range of print and e-resources, including UW-System and UW-Milwaukee print collections, digital images, institutional repositories, and collections of academic literature and journal articles. Users can view search results in a single sortable list or use facets to narrow down results by item type, date, location, etc. It is strongly suggested that you sign in, using your ePantherID, when using Search@UW. This allows you to easily request items from other campuses, check status of items you have on loan, or manage an ‘e-shelf’ of resources.

Consult the Search@UW Library Guide for detailed user instructions, online video demonstrations and troubleshooting tips.
