Searching the Catalog can be a bit daunting. If you use the search box on the front of the Libraries' website, called Search@UW, you will get results from ALL of the UW campuses. In order to limit to what we have physically, you want to go the search page itself.

Subject Headings are assigned to each item in the library to help describe what it is like in its entirety. So books (or recordings or scores) will often have only one or two subject headings, but these headings are linked together and once you find one item that is exactly what you want, you can click the Subject Heading and the catalog will bring you back a list of more items with the same topic.
Books about a person: Ellington, Duke
Books about a class of people: Jazz musicians --United States --Biography
Books about a type of music: Popular Music
To limit further, you can use the Advanced Search
