Using technology and people to meet user needs

From the technology that drives our systems to the staff who know how to help, look over what you can expect to find in our campus library, and quickly see that we are prepared to meet all student, faculty and community research needs.

Search@UW is a library catalog that provides access to materials throughout the UW System. Our staff is here to help you navigate the catalog to find the materials you are looking for.

The library's computer lab consists of 15 PCs (Windows OS) and 1 Mac, and is the only open lab on campus. The lab is available to students, faculty, staff, and community members. There are a number of programs available including Microsoft Office and Adobe Suite, and printing is available at varying costs depending on the type of patron. The library also has unlimited wi-fi access throughout the building.
