Western Libraries serves as the Copyright Office for Western Washington University. Our goal is to work with you in order to make appropriate resources available for your students.
We have put in place procedures to support instructors in using the Libraries’ extensive electronic and print collections to reduce costs for both their departments and students. When we do not have access to needed resources we can work with you to obtain access.
