Student Employee Scholarships

In 1998 we created the Libraries Student Employee Scholarship Program. Over the years, and with donor support, more than $292,000 has been awarded to 317 students.

With scholarships, we support our outstanding student employees and staff who are the architects of information and the facilitators of knowledge.

Tateuchi East Asia Library Renovation

Tateuchi East Asia Library Renovation

Libraries services and users have changed in the 50 years since the Tateuchi East Asia Library moved into Gowen Hall (1976). While retaining the traditional architectural setting, our renovation plans will add more spaces for quiet study, collaborative research, public presentations, and in-demand services to help students succeed. A stunning virtual-walkthrough of the architectural renderings reflects planned renovations to improve the student experience. Support for this project is a paramount priority for the UW Libraries.

Open Scholarship

How do we connect our users with knowledge? As we look to a more diverse, more open future, we must ensure we not only have the resources to adequately steward and preserve the history of all people, but can actively make good on our promise to serve the public and extend knowledge beyond our walls.

Especially during COVID-19, your gifts help us create online learning services and open educational resources.
