University Libraries

Academic & Research Commons

The ARC is a collaborative partnership among the Brooks Library and the Academic Success Center. The ARC offers research assistance and tutoring in an interactive study space. The ARC provides a safe space for students to explore and make learning connections that will allow them to achieve success at the university and in their future endeavors.

Collaboration Areas in the ARC

The Academic & Research Commons is, above all, a place for collaboration. To encourage collaboration, we have many different areas designed to cater to the various needs of our students, staff, and faculty. Below, you will find descriptions of these areas.

Presentation room 155C is available in two-hour increments and can be reserved up to two weeks in advance by students, faculty, and staff. For more information or assistance, please call the iDesk at (509) 963-1021. Reservations are recommended.

Walk-ins and appointments are available for students, faculty, and staff who need help with research. Tutoring and academic coaching sessions are available for all current students.
