The New Look of Search@UW

May 8, 2017

On May 23rd, UW Colleges Libraries will roll out the New Search@UW experience.  Search@ UW will still be the best start to your research projects with its simple, one-stop searching for books (from all UW schools), e-books, full text articles, media, including streaming videos, and more.   

The new interface was available to preview during the spring semester.  Now, after testing and fine-tuning, Search@ UW is ready to debut.   Here are some of the improvements we think you’ll like:            

  • Fewer drop-down menus and tabs.
  • More descriptive labeling and icons.
  • Smoother navigation to and from results lists.
  • Narrow your search results more easily using facets.
  • Identify the UW Libraries which have the item you want.

If you have questions or suggestions, please contact your Campus Librarians.  Search@ UW is always evolving to improve the user experience!
