How to find books

Use Search@UW to locate books, media, and articles in the entire UW System.  By selecting "UW Colleges Books & Media" you can limit your search to the 13 UW Colleges campus libraries, including items at UW-Baraboo/Sauk County. 

If you don't find the materials you need on our campus, students and faculty can request to borrow books and other materials owned by other UW libraries. View our Request Tutorial video.

The following sources are good places to expand your search.
