  • Active Print logo
    Active Print Collection

    As students, teachers, researchers, and life-long learners, even if we don’t always use books, we like the idea of books. There’s a joy in interacting with the printed word that we celebrate here at Brooks Library. We will continue to care for our print collections at CWU as collection management is an active, constant process. While we develop that plan, in Fall 2019, we’ll be presenting dynamic mobile book displays on the first floor and in the Student Commons.

    We invite ideas for interaction with print! Want to talk about a teaching in the stacks session? A scholarly works laboratory? Talk to us, and be part of Active Print! For more information, be sure to check out:
