As of August 28, 1995, the Edward L. Ullman Geography Branch Library as we knew it has ceased to exist :-( The facility has now been converted to a "Resource Collaboratory" :-) However, the concept of a "Geography Library" as a reference to the "Geography Collection" distributed among many (mortar & digital) Libraries on and off Campus is alive and well and indispensable to our activities in Economic and Business Geography.
There still is a Chief "Geography Librarian". The location of his/her office and office hours will be announced.
Here are accounts of some of the events related to the "spatial restructuring" of the Library's Geography Collection.
There are a number of primary libraries which we will use and numerous librarians familiar with our (Library Closure) plight and eager to help during this particularly difficult period of transition:

There is a growing number of web site for Washington libraries, their access to computers and the Internet, and information about Washington, designed for and by public libraries, including links to those public libraries with web stuff (Source: Anne Zald and others).
Source for this info, and more detailed phone/address info: Directory of Washington Libraries Suzzallo Reference Desk Z732.W28W35 "I've only listed public libraries, but it does include all other kinds (academic, special, and government). UW may be atypical, but we do not provide internet access to students at other institutions nor to the general public, so I'm not sure what success students will have pursuing other academic libraries. Special libraries tend to be in businesses and not open to the general public" (Anne Zald, E-Mail, 1996).
