Located at the heart of the undergraduate campus, Lewis & Clark’s Watzek Library is an ideal setting for research, study and collaboration. Serving undergraduate and graduate students, Watzek provides rich collections of print and electronic resources and friendly librarians to help students with their research projects. The Boley Law Library serves the Law School and is a center of legal information for the region.
Lewis & Clark’s libraries subscribe to thousands of electronic journals, books, research databases, primary sources and data sets that take research far beyond a Google search. But even if the article or book you need is not readily available, the libraries can get it for you fast.
Librarians work with students to help navigate an increasingly complex information universe. At Watzek, you can connect up with one by visiting the reference desk, setting up a consultation, or meeting one through an in-class instruction session.
Things to love about Watzek Library:
Open 24 hours Sunday-Thursday
Comfy furniture, serene views, and even a fireplace

Watzek Library Director Mark Dahl has been awarded a Fulbright Specialist appointment to visit the National Library of Kosovo . During October 2019 he will work with the National Library and other departments within the Kosovo Ministry of Culture to develop a strategic plan for the National Library.
Thanks to support from Jeremy McWilliams at Lewis & Clark’s Watzek Library Digital Initiatives Office, the team used the college’s HPC cluster (lovingly named BLT for its three servers: bacon, lettuce, and tomato - better together) to crunch data analyzing 9 proteomes and 22 transcriptomes. The use of high-performance computing not only provided otherwise unattainable insights and discoveries, it also proved invaluable in training student-researchers.
Watzek Library is proud to display a temporary exhibit by Art Therapy graduate student Kat Scarim entitled Youth Shackled.
