Get Help From a Librarian

Students: Librarians are available to answer questions about library resources, research strategies, focusing a topic, citing sources, evaluating information and more at the Information Commons desk during most hours the Campus Library is open.

You can make an appointment to meet with a librarian who is working with your class or is an expert in the subject you are researching. Appointments with some librarians can be scheduled online. Check the list of librarians (by name or by subject) or your class guide (CC, UWB) to find your librarian. More ways to get help, including our 24/7 online chat reference service...

Faculty: Librarians are available to consult individually with UW Bothell and Cascadia faculty members on creating effective research assignments. Work with a librarian to create or revise assignments and classroom activities that foster critical thinking, evaluation skills, and promote lifelong learning. More info...
