Library Catalogs & Search Tips

UW Libraries catalog: includes the collections of the University Libraries, UW Law Library, and the American Heritage Center.


        Tips for searching for books with images:

  • Add "in art" or "photography" to a search to find books with artistic images related to that topic: 
    • wolves in art
    • food in art
    • photography of children
  • Add “pictorial works” to a search to find books on various topics with lots of images:  “Vietnam war” pictorial works
  • Descriptions of books in the catalog give you clues that a book is illustrated:
    • Description 192 p. : ill. (some col.) ; 19 cm. means the book has 192 pages, is illustrated, and some of the illustrations are color. The book is 19 centimeters tall (about 7-1/2 inches).
    • Description 344 p., [48] p. of plates : ill., map ; 21 cm. means this book includes 48 full-page illustrations (plates).
  • Note that some heavily illustrated books are oversized and located in a separate section of the library. If the catalog gives a location of Folio Stacks Level 1, the book is larger than other books at the library.
