About the SPU Library

Welcome to the SPU Library—a place to discover, create, and share knowledge.

The SPU Library provides collections, instruction, tools, spaces, and personnel to advance teaching, learning, and scholarship at Seattle Pacific University. Our local collections include digital, print, and archival resources and, through the Summit borrowing system, we provide access to the collections of thirty-six other academic libraries in Washington, Oregon, and Idaho. Our librarians are available to provide instructional and research assistance, and at our Front Desk students can find technological support and tools for their academic work. Throughout the library, a variety of spaces are available for individual and collaborative work.

I invite you to explore and avail yourself of all that we have to offer through this website and in our facility. I hope you will, and let us know how we can improve and innovate to enhance your learning and research experience.

University Librarian and Associate Professor
