Your Subject Librarians (or Liaisons)
Need a librarian to teach your class about using the library? Not sure who you should
consult for research help for a specific discipline? The reference librarians can
help. Here is a list of what they can do and who to contact.
Subject liaisons can:
- Receive recommendations for purchases - books, periodicals, or electronic resources
(such as databases)
- Conduct tours of the library
- Conduct bibliographic instruction (sometimes called “library sessions”) for classes.
These classes can be tailored to specific assignments or classes, or can be overviews
of the Library’s resources
- Help develop research assignments
- Assist with and collaborate on research
Every department on campus has a subject librarian – check the list below to see who
is and how to contact your librarian, or click here to browse by subject. Feel free to contact us. If you're unsure who to ask, just Ask A Librarian.
