About Search@UW:

  • The most efficient way to find scholarly articles at UWRF is to use Search@UW.  
  • Search@UW is a service implemented across UW System. It provides an integrated search and discovery experience across a wide range of print and e-resources, including UW System and UW River Falls print collections, digital images, institutional repositories, and huge collections of academic literature. Searching these resources traditionally required multiple searches at multiple sites.
  • It is strongly suggested that you sign in, using your FalconID, when using Search@UW. This allows you to easily request items from other campuses, check status of items you have on loan, or manage your pinned, or favorited, resources. Some resources are only searchable off campus by sign-in users, for example Web of Science.
