HISTORY 600: America and China (Fall 2020) : Finding Books
Searching in the Library Catalog
The best way to find books for this class is to search the library catalog. The library catalog searches all of the campus libraries at UW-Madison.
Here's a helpful tutorial for you to learn more about searching in the library catalog:
Access Digital Books through the Library Catalog
During COVID-19, you may want to know if the library has online access to a specific book or to books on a topic you are researching.
Access books purchased or licensed as electronic books (Ebooks) by the Libraries
- Go to Library Catalog Advanced Search (This link to Advanced Search shows page for searching UW-Madison collections only.)
- Click box next to "Available Online" at the top of the page. (Note: This will bring up books purchased or licensed by the Libraries in an eBook format.)
- Click box next to "Books" on the right side of page under "Limit your search by."
- Type in your search using the boxes (for example, title in Title box, author in Author box, words for topic in Keywords box, etc.).
