Do the UIW Libraries Have This?: Home

Tips for locating items listed in bibliographies/works cited pages and items listed in the library’s electronic resources.


The UIW Libraries provide access to materials in a variety of formats through various methods.  In fact, the UIW Libraries provide direct access to more than 400,000 print and e-books, more than 50,000 physical media and streaming media titles, and more than 80,000 print and digital serials.  Because of this very large number, often times, library staff get requests for titles that we actually do provide.  That’s okay. We’ll teach you how to find these items AND we’ll also teach you how once you have determined that we do not provide access to something you need, how to use one of our resource sharing services to request a copy of that information source!  Aren’t libraries magical?  We hope you think so too.
