HALcat, the Andersen Library Catalog, contains records of library holdings, including books, government documents, periodicals (journals, magazines and newspapers), VHS recordings, DVDs, CDs, etc. physically contained in the library. The Catalog also has records for some online books, journals, documents and databases which may be used by UW-W students, faculty, and staff. It does not find periodical articles; for that use online databases. This guide covers features not discussed in How to Use the Library Catalog: 1. Basic Search. See that guide for assistance with basic search options.
