The University of Washington Libraries are interactive, interdisciplinary spaces for scholarship where technology and information come together. UW Librarians work with students and faculty to equip students with the skills and resources needed to be successful researchers, scholars and informed citizens in an information-rich world.

The Honors Librarian partnership introduces Honors students to the University of Washington Libraries. As a service to all of our current students, Librarians from throughout the Libraries system serve as a connection to the University Libraries and as resources for your research needs.

Honors Librarians span all different subject areas and interests. Find out more about them by browsing their profiles below, where you’ll also find their contact information. Any librarian can help you get started on a research project and many of them are subject specialists, a librarian with expertise in a specific academic discipline, who can help you with research in your major.
