## Search the Entire Collection

While the items you'll find in the Reference Collection can be a terrific place to start your research, more detailed information can be found in the Library's print and eBook collections. The search box found here is the same as the one on the Library's main page - it can search for books and other material here at the UWinnipeg Library, at libraries in Winnipeg, at libraries across Canada, or even libraries around the world.

Mathematics ranges from Computer Science to Philosophy, from Physics to Finance. Mathematics emphasizes precision and logic, but also creativity and problem solving.

Wildcards |
Words may be right-hand truncated using an asterisk ('*') in place of other characters. The '*' wildcard may also be embedded in a search string. You may use '?' to replace a single character anywhere within a word. Examples : environment* polic*, wom?n |
---|---|

Boolean Operators |
Use "and" or "or" to specify multiple words in any field, any order. Use "and not" to exclude words. Example : stocks and bonds Example : (alaska or canada) and (adventure and not vacation) |

Field limits |
A field limit causes the system to search only the specified field for the specified word(s). |

Grouping |
Keyword search results are usually grouped by relevance to bring the most likely titles to the top of the list. Each group represents a similar level of relevance and results are sorted within the group by date or title. To get an ungrouped result set, use boolean operators to form a complex query. |

Mathematics branches out over many different subject areas. If you want to browse either the reference (main floor) or regular (upstairs) collections to find material, I would suggest that you look in the following sections:

QA 1-43 - General Mathematics

QA 47-59 - Tables

QA 71-90 - Instruments and Machines

QA 101-145 - Elementary Mathematics. Arithmetic

QA 150-272.5 - Algebra

QA 299.6-433 - Analysis

QA 440-699 - Geometry. Trigonometry. Topology

QA 801-939 - Analytic Mechanics

- Digital Mathematics Library (DML)Contains links to 4514 digitized books (> 643597 pages )

and to 318 digitized journals/seminars (> 4303824 pages). - European Mathematical Information Service (EMIS)The European Mathematical Information Service (EMIS) was founded in 1995 as the central portal for electronic math resources in Europe. Since then, with the support of the European Mathematical Society and many publishers, FIZ Karlsruhe has developed the largest open access electronic library in mathematics ELibM as the core of EMIS, as well as many more useful resources.
- Historical Mathematics Monographs (Cornell University)The Cornell University Library Historical Mathematics Monographs is a collection of selected monographs with expired copyrights chosen from the mathematics field. These were monographs that were brittle and decaying and in need of rescue. These monographs were digitally scanned and facsimile editions on acid free paper were created.
- Jahrbuch Database: Electronic Research Archive for MathematicsThe complete Jahrbuch, v.1-68; 1868-1942 is now available online. This is THE resource for mathematical literature during this time period. This database contains a few links to full text articles, but it is primarily an index to the literature.
- MacTutor History of Mathematics archiveMajor features include biography, history topics, and famous curves indexes; mathematicians of the day, and a site search engine.
- NUMDAM (French Mathematical Journals)The NUMDAM web site (NumÃ©risation de documents anciens mathÃ©matiques) offers an open access to the metadata and articles published in mathematical journals. For each journal, all the volumes published up to year 2000 have been retro-digitized. To date, 560 000 digitized pages and 27 000 articles are shown on the web site.
- University of Michigan Historical Mathematics CollectionThe University of Michigan Historical Mathematics Collection is a growing library of books selected from the University of Michigan mathematics collection that have been digitized to improve access and to preserve the content of these books. All of the books in this collection were published in the 19th or early 20th century.
- GDZ (Gottinger Digitalisierungs-Zentrum) MathematicaThis is a German retrospective digitization of eighteenth- and nineteenth-century journals, multi-volume sets, and monographs.

*Copyright** Act* and the University's Copyright Policy. Using the New system, instructors can submit requests for a variety of resources - both physical and digital - and Reserves staff will ensure copyright compliance before making the items available to students.

Interlibrary Loan Requests can be submitted one of two ways:

- by filling out a request form on our website.
- using the
link in one of our databases.**Find Text**

For example, if, when searching in an Ebsco database, you discover a resource that is unavailable here at the UofW, you can click * Request an Interlibrary Loan.* It will take few seconds to search for the item at other institutions. You may view a list of institutions where this item is available, or simply proceed. Upon entering your barcode, your request is placed.

Interlibrary loan materials may take a week or longer to arrive, so please have patience. If you item has not arrived within ten days, contact the Interlibrary Loan department at 786-9814.
