UW Libraries Teaching & Learning

    udub iconThe UW Seattle Libraries offers a mix of online (asynchronous and synchronous) and in-person instruction services.

          • This multimodal approach allows the Libraries to uphold our core values of excellence, equity, and access while delivering services that meet the needs of instructors and students.
          • A requested modality (online or in-person) cannot be guaranteed in all circumstances.
            • If a requested modality is not feasible, alternatives will be offered based on pedagogical needs and current staffing capabilities.
            • Instructors may contact their subject librarian to discuss options.
          • Services include: library instruction sessions, orientations, research consultations, and workshops
