Directions to BAG meetings at UW Libraries

BAG Meetings at the University of Washington Libraries usually take place in the Maps/Special Collections Classroom in the Suzzallo and Allen Library.  In general these meetings are from 7:00-9:00 pm with doors to the classroom opening at 6:45.

  1. Go to the north lobby of the Allen Library [the one with the crows hanging above your head]. This is the ground floor. If you come in the Suzzallo West Entrance walk completely through the building and you will walk into the Allen addition. You will be on the 1st floor of the lobby with the crows at eye level.
  2. Take the elevator in that lobby to the basement.
  3. As you get out of the elevator, turn to your right and walk a short way to the hallway going off to the right.
  4. Part way down this hallway is the classroom door, the first door on your right. It has a sign that juts out from the wall.
