Our Library

Cascadia and the University of Washington Bothell share a library on campus that is part of the University of Washington library system. Students, faculty, and staff have full access to the books, periodicals, and other resources available at any of the University of Washington's libraries. If you wish to use materials from the UW Seattle and UW Tacoma libraries you must check them out in person; there is no courier or document delivery service available.

The library’s website  provides valuable information about the resources and services available. It includes the UW Libraries Catalog, electronic databases and encyclopedias, electronic reserves, information about connecting to the library network from home, and course-specific research guides. You may view your library record, renew books, request email notification and more online.

The UW NetID allows you access to online library records, online renewals, electronic reserves, online databases, and other resources when you're off-campus. You can create a UW NetID after you have created your Cascadia network account in the Open Learning Center (CC2-060).

Your Cascadia Student ID is your library card. Bring your Cascadia Student ID card and your UW NetID information to the front desk on the first floor of the Campus Library to activate your account.

The online library tour is recommended for all new students.
