General Guidance 

Acquiring Information

Once you know what you're looking for, the next step may be obtaining it. Sometimes, that's as simple as downloading a PDF from a database, but it can also become more complex if we don't have access to the initial resource. Use the links below to obtain different materials, whether we have immediate access to the resource or not.

Delivering Library Physical Materials to Harborview

Campus mail box delivery is the only delivery method for Harborview

1.  To Place a Request:

  • Request an item through the library catalog and select "Send to Fac-Staff UW Mailbox" as your pickup location.
  • Items must be sent to a valid campus box number. Check your campus box number in your library account. If the address is not correct you will need to change your address by accessing the Employee Self-Service web site. It may take a week or so for our information to be updated.

2.  Returning Material:

  • Send material back to Suzzallo Circulation, Box 352900, via campus mail
    • To allow for mailing time you should send material back at least 2 days before the due date.
  • Or drop off at any UW Library
  • Or use a UW Campus library book return
