Library &

PCNW has a reference library and study area open to students and visitors.

Materials from the library must remain in the library and are available for reference only. Students enrolled in the Certificate Program should make use of regional libraries for research work related to photographic practice. These libraries include:

Seattle Public Library

Resources at the Seattle Public Library include Photographs and resources in the library’s Special Collections, as well as circulating material.

University of Washington Libraries

Non-UW students and visitors may use books, journals and most other materials on-site.

In addition to the main holdings at the UW Libraries, students should make use of the UW Digital Collections, which holds an online archive of primary source material.
