          • Need help guiding students through research for an assignment?

          • Interested in incorporating library tools into coursework yourself?

Whether you have specific questions or want to learn more about what the Libraries can provide to you as an instructor, the University of Washington (UW) Libraries is here to help! We also support the concept that students, faculty, staff and community members from diverse backgrounds thrive when inclusive teaching, learning, research, and working environments are created and maintained.

The content on this page is directed toward UW-Seattle instructors. See also: Teaching Remotely at UW | Teaching support at: UW Bothell and Cascadia College Library & UW Tacoma Library.
