Library Coaches are undergraduate peer mentors trained in research skills. They can help your students with finding quality information about a topic for their course, find background information or answer other questions about the Libraries. Library Coaches offer drop-in desk hours and are also available by appointment.

We offer four standalone workshops aimed at helping students develop research questions, evaluate sources, understand academic honesty and plagiarism, and sharpen their skills for upper-level assignments. You can share these workshops with your classes and allow them to earn extra credit for attending--all through Canvas Commons and the SOAR platform. Check out our tutorial on importing these extra credit workshops


UW Libraries provides extensive support for distance students, offering access to online databases, e-books, research assistance via Zoom meetings, email or chat, interlibrary loan services for materials not available online, and online guides tailored to assist with research and citation. See our Distance Webpage for more information.
