The WSU library has got 11 sites – we want you to feel comfortable and welcome in navigating the library’s physical and virtual spaces. You may check our Library guide for open hours. Each library has areas designated for quiet learning zones and group discussion/chat rooms to accommodate your collaborative study needs.

An enthusiastic team of faculty librarians and desk staff are always ready to help you with your study, learning and research needs. Please feel free to ask our staff at the reference or circulation desk for help, suggesting new curriculum-related learning material to add to the collection, for example.
