Library back-up site

In the event that the Campus Library website is down, our resourceful librarians have developed an alternate Campus Library website that provides access to all the Library’s resources, including UW Libraries Search and journal article databases, Research & Class Guides and the Chat with a Librarian service. This site is only active when the Campus Library’s main website is down.
