Description

Arriving at college can be an overwhelming experience for most first year and transfer students. The amount of information about resources available is simultaneously overwhelming and difficult to navigate. Our website collects many of the available free resources at the University of Washington Libraries, Seattle Public Library, and King County Library to allow students to easily find all of the incredible products and services their libraries provide. Making these resources more visible and user friendly to first year and transfer students enables them to excel in life, specifically as students, and more generally as human beings.
