Tips for locating children's and young adult books which depict various cultures/ethnicities:
a) try an Advanced Search in Search@UW
b) search the Subject field like this: "young adult" OR juvenile (quotations and word OR just as shown)
c) search the Subject field in another row with the word or words for the culture/ethnicity you're interested in
d) after getting search results, set your Filters on the left side (Refine My Results):
i) limit to Resource Type > Books
ii) select a Genre option if you wish
Here is a sample search on the topic "Native American," limited to Books, and Genre: Juvenile Literature (you can use this search and change your topic and filters as you wish)
For more efficient searching:
Quotation marks around a phrase will insure the keywords are searched as a phrase, e.g. "indians of north america."
An asterisk expands a search term to include all forms of word, e.g., teach* = teacher, teaching, teachable, etc.
You could also search this database for book recommendations, then look for the book title in Search@UW to see if it is available to borrow.
