Subject Specialists

Library Research Services provides faculty and students with a personal contact to whom library-related issues and questions may be addressed. The list is arranged by campus to facilitate face-to-face communication, but faculty and students are welcome to contact liaisons with subject expertise regardless of the campus where they work. For those subject areas where vacancies exist, a contact person who can assist with general library services is listed.

For more information about Library Research Services, please contact:
