Criteria for Inclusion

Northwest Collection

Criteria for Inclusion

The Northwest Collection includes works of all published genres and in all disciplines that pertain to the Pacific Northwest. This eligibility is established through the presence of specific subject terminology in the catalog record that identifies places in the Northwest or topics associated with the Northwest (e.g., people groups indigenous to the region). The collection also includes works by select creators associated with the Pacific Northwest, who are described in detail in this list.

Certain categories of resources are excluded from the Northwest Collection because of their format (e.g., maps, children’s books, government documents) or non-circulating status (e.g., rare books in Special Collections).

The collection is actively maintained and developed by Western Libraries. If you have suggestions or questions about creators or works that are (or are not) represented in the collection, please use this feedback form.
