Library Services

Research services

Librarians offer help with research, finding information, or using the library on weekdays (hours may vary). We also have a 24/7 service that provides library & research help via online chat, and dozens of research guides online.

Information services

Have a quick question? Or not sure who to ask for help? Ask at an iDesk on the 2nd floor or call 206-296-INFO. Our friendly staff will provide immediate assistance for basic library questions, help you connect with a librarian for more in-depth questions, or refer you to the appropriate service on campus.

Borrowing services

Most people think of books when they think of libraries, and borrowing services are indeed core to the library’s services.  Visit the circulation desk on the 3rd floor if you want to check out books or ask questions about borrowing items.

The library also services specifically designed for faculty and for students.


The building itself provides a service to the community, with its technology, great places to study, and even a café!
