UW Libraries Search (beta) Returns for Summer 2014

Over the past year we have been working with our vendor to improve UW Libraries Search (beta), largely based on our users' input.  For the summer quarter, we are launching it as our default search interface on the UW Libraries home page, with the intention of getting more widespread user feedback. UW WorldCat will remain available via a tab on the main search box on the Libraries homepage.

Among the new features and improvements:

  • Citation tools are integrated into every record so that you can easily copy and paste a citation from the most popular citation styles.

  • "Permalinks" that provide stable URLs that you can save or share.

  • Location filters that allow you to narrow your results to items in a particular building, such as Odegaard Undergraduate Library or the Music Library.

  • View only those items that are currently available, rather than items that are already checked out.

We value your feedback and we are committed to continuing to provide excellent service to support to the UW community. Please contact us with your comments and questions.
