Biographical / Historical

The Washington State University, Vancouver Library was established in 1989 where it operated out of a room at Bauer Hall on the Clark College campus. The Library moved to its location in the Library Building in 1996 with the construction of the WSU Vancouver campus in Salmon Creek. The mission of the library is to advance the research and learning goals of all members of the WSU Vancouver community and to serve as an information resource within the Southwest Washington community.

The Library's Reference Services provides classroom and one-on-one instruction. To help facilitate the abundance of information and resources avilable through WSU Libraries and the interenet, Reference routinely compiles bioliographic information and guides to direct users to valuable resources. The Libray Guides are one of the tools the Library uses for this service.
