There are nearly 100 student-funded 24-inch computer workstations with touch-screens and DVD drives in the Library for use by UWB and Cascadia College students, staff, and faculty for academic purposes. These workstations provide access to databases and online resources licensed by the University of Washington Libraries, Microsoft Office software, email, Internet access, and playback for the libraries DVD collection. (See our software page for more details.) Five of these workstations include legal-size flatbed scanners. We also have an adaptive technology workstation equipped with assistive hardware and software.
There are a number of touch-screen laptops available for checkout ONLY by current UW Bothell students for academic purposes. (A portable DVD or Blu-Ray drive may also be available for checkout with these laptops.)
Network and Wireless Access
If you have a laptop or mobile device on campus, wireless internet access is available for Current Students, Staff and Faculty via the UW Wireless network or Cascadia Wireless network. Visitors can access sites inside of the washington.edu domain while on the UW Wireless network, but will need to provide a form of photo identification and contact information to get a temporary UW NetID to access sites outside of the washington.edu domain. Ask library staff about obtaining a temporary UW NetID.
Guest Research Stations
Visitors can access all UW Libraries' resources, limited email and fee-based printing using our Guest Research Stations. These 4 computer workstations are for use by visitors for academic purposes, and provide access to databases and online resources licensed by the University Libraries, limited email access (Hotmail, Outlook, Yahoo, Gmail) and Internet access to all Web sites with .edu, .gov, .org, .mil, .museum extensions. See the Guest Research Station Software list for more details.
* The Campus Library does not have any Mac computer workstations for students, staff, or faculty use. UWB students may have access to the Open Learning Lab in Commons Hall (UW2-140) which has both Mac and Windows computers. Cascadia students should check with the Cascadia Information Services department in CC2-171 for Mac computer availability.

Specifically, this campus is located on Sammamish Land from which settler colonists forcibly removed Coast Salish Peoples to reservations in the mid-19th century. Today, descendants of the Sammamish are members of several Coast Salish communities.
