Codes for Electronic Resource Types
Electronic resources cataloged for the Libraries have an Innovative location code assigned. This code serves two purposes. First, it provides a display of "Available Online" and ability to limit searches by electronic resource in the catalog (Where item is located criteria). Second, the code serves to describe the type, or format, of the electronic resource for use in auto-generated pages from the Digital Registry in the UW Libraries Web Gateway.
This list will continue to evolve and change.
Entries highlighted in gray are categories that create auto-generated pages for major resources on the UW Libraries Web Gateway. Please be selective when adding items to these locations.
