Research Assistance for Faculty

Librarians can help more than students with their research. We're here to support faculty research above and beyond the classroom.

Find Your Subject Librarian

Each department has a librarian assigned who specializes in research for that subject area. Liaison librarians work with you to support research & learning in your department by:

  • Purchasing materials (books, journals, databases, etc.) to support your department's curriculum
  • Creating online research help guides for your students
  • Providing information literacy instruction
  • Acting as the "go to" librarian for your research & instruction needs.
