Research Resources

“library as place”

Stop by to browse our collections of books, magazines, journals, media, and college-related archives.  We offer both silent and collaborative spaces.  You may even experience serendipity.

 “library without walls”

Visit the library’s Web site to access research tools and library information.  We participate in the Ask-WA 24/7 chat reference service.

  - Use the Library Catalog to identify and locate titles in our collection

  - Search our Research Databases to find general interest & scholarly articles, primary documents, multimedia sources, and more
  - Explore and borrow from other library collections through our inter-library loan service

UW Libraries

Community college faculty are eligible for borrowing privileges.  UW-restricted services such as interlibrary loan and remote access to databases are excluded.

- Apply for a free borrower card at the UW Library Cashier Office, located on the 1st floor of Suzzallo Library.

- Present current institutional ID, or submit a letter on official letterhead to the UW Library Cashier.

Library Liaisons

Consult with your liaison librarian to request materials for the collection that support your curriculum and to collaborate on ideas to meet our mutual teaching and learning needs. Liaisons coordinate both library instruction and library collections.

    Information Literacy

    Help Students Become
    Information Savvy

    Instruction sessions work best when:
    - Students have an assignment that requires them to use the library and they receive it prior to their scheduled library workshop.

    Instructors test the assignment to be sure that it is workable and that the resources needed to complete it are available.

    The librarian and instructor design workshops to address immediate information needs.

    Librarians have time to think about the learning outcomes and plan an appropriate workshop.

    Students sense their instructor’s enthusiasm.
