Services for UW in the High School
UW in the High School (UWHS) is a program administered by UW Education Outreach in which high school students can complete University of Washington courses - and earn UW credit - in their own classrooms and with their own teachers.
Borrowing privileges for UWHS instructors & students
UWHS instructors and students who have successfully obtained Husky cards have access to a wide range of on-site Libraries materials and services. These include the ability to search the catalog, borrow books, scan and send materials, and request items through Interlibrary Loan.
To get students started with on-campus borrowing, please guide them through the steps for obtaining a Husky card. For other questions about Libraries borrowing privileges, please contact Library Account Services.
Accessing UW Libraries materials from off-campus
UWHS instructors and students may use their UW NetIDs and passwords to access thousands of online resources from on- or off-campus, including full-text journal issues, newspaper and magazine articles, e-books, image collections, and more.
To access UW-restricted resources while off-campus, open a browser window to the UW Libraries homepage, and click on the "Off-Campus Access" login box in the upper right hand corner of the screen to prompt a log in. For more information, visit Connect from Off-Campus.
Planning visits and getting help from a librarian
UWHS instructors are welcome to bring their students to visit the UW Libraries, but are requested to register plans ahead of time by filling out the following online form.
UWHS students are also free to contact UW librarians for reference and research assistance by using one or more the Libraries' popular "Ask Us!" services. These include a 24/7 online chat system, as well as email and text-messaging services.
