Mission and Values


The Campus Library supports and enhances teaching, learning, and research at the University of Washington Bothell and Cascadia College. As part of the University of Washington Libraries we acquire and manage material and virtual resources, and promote the creation and use of knowledge in an atmosphere where information and ideas are readily accessible and freely exchanged.

To accomplish our mission, Campus Library will:

  • Collaborate with faculty to develop critical thinking and information literacy, in order to graduate students with life-long learning skills.
  • Provide research and instructional services that enable students, faculty and staff to effectively access and use information and technology.
  • Collaborate with faculty in integrating technology into the curriculum to enhance teaching and learning.
  • Provide timely, accurate, and individualized services and resources to help faculty and students attain their academic goals.
  • Develop strategic partnerships in order to provide an evolving range of services to faculty, staff, and students.


  • Quality, personalized services for our users with the flexibility to accommodate their individual needs.
  • Informed and innovative support based on leading edge practices in the use of information and technology in teaching, learning, and research.
  • Collegiality and effective communication within our department and throughout the University and College.
  • A positive work environment that advocates staff empowerment and development.
