Use the Search@UW box above to search for books. Limit specifically to books by using the "books" resource type on the left side of the search results. Or use the "Books & Media (UWSP)" or "Books & Media (UW System)" scopes.
Try combining these suggested search terms with your more specific book/author (i.e., sherlock holmes, Arthur Conan Doyle).
In addition, try browsing the shelf using these call number ranges.
Visit our helpful guide for more about using call numbers to locate items in the library.

Subject Specific Databases
There are also many databases that are subject specific that may have more information pertinent to your topic. You are able to browse for specific subject databases by using the "Find Databases" link from the homepage. Then look for the subject drop-down box. Hint: if you are unsure where to search ask for help at the Reference Desk!
Step 1: Think about your topic and come up with search keywords. Then if possible, find difference expressions (synonyms) of your keywords. Hint: Once you find a good source, note what keywords or subject headings are used to describe the topic. Use these terms in additional searches.
Step 2: Effectively use your search keywords to produce the best results.
