Finding Materials in EAL Catalogs

The majority of EAL materials are listed in the online catalog. Always check the UW Libraries Catalog first (use Pinyin romanization for Chinese titles). If the materials are older publications and not found in the online catalog,  then check the card catalog (use Wade-Giles romanization for Chinese titles).

The card catalog contains records that have been converted into the online catalog. Only a very small percentage of the library's holdings that were cataloged before the online catalog was available are represented only in the card catalog.
