Who is MyLibrarian? | Library Services

Did you know that each academic program on campus has a librarian dedicated to student and faculty success in that area? It's called MyLibrarian.

You may have seen your MyLibrarian helping students or faculty in the Information Commons or holding sessions in the Library Classroom. Your MyLibrarian is happy to meet with students and faculty one-on-one to talk about research, use the library catalog and databases, find resources, make interlibrary loan requests, and more.

This is really helpful for faculty who are conducting research or who may be seeking some ideas for class assignments that use the library. Faculty and students can also suggest items for addition to the library's collections. Find your librarian below!
