Welcome back to campus for winter 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 are thrilled to be the home of the Wildcat Pantry on the first floor.
We’re continuing our quality library programming, and for the winter we’ll continue a mix of virtual and in-person. Check out 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 Tri-City Herald Collection with Historical 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!
