Welcome back to campus for spring 2022!
We’re looking forward to your visit to the CWU Libraries this quarter, whether to our building or to our virtual services. If you need research help, you can choose in-person or electronic appointments. If you have a quick question, try our 24/7 chat service.
If you come to Brooks, take advantage of our second floor commons, reserve group or individual study rooms, or hang out in the beloved Fishbowl. Watch for new featured collection selections throughout Brooks on various topics and in various formats changing regularly. We are also renovating the Music Library on the fourth floor – stay tuned for updates!
We’re continuing our quality library programming – we have a very exciting line-up of author talks, book discussions, and other opportunities. In April, we’re excited to host the inaugural Provost Presents Faculty Research Lecture. Check out more in the Events Calendar.
We continue to enhance, diversify, and deepen our electronic resource collections. I encourage you to explore our streaming video collections including Academic Video Online and Documentary Educational Resources Premium. Our growing online newspaper collection spans the state, the world, and different cultures – try The Times of India, the archives of the Chicago Defender, Hispanic American Newspapers, or perhaps the Olympian Archives.
If you’re a history buff, explore Historical Statistical Abstracts of the United States, History Vault, or Archives Unbound.
If you’re looking for music and other performing arts, try Entertainment Industry Magazine Archive: Music, Radio and The Stage, Met Opera on Demand, or Contemporary World Music.
We hope that we can provide peace of mind and intellectual nourishment, and enjoyable events. Watch our website for the very latest updates.
Be well and excel!

Dean of Libraries
