Our librarians work as liaisons in specific units - schools, departments, colleges, centers and programs. These subject-matter experts provide many services, including instruction, in depth research assistance and collection development support. You can meet with librarians in person or online.


Stop by the service desks in Cabell Library and Tompkins-McCaw Library to get help using the collections and spaces, get started with your research, or borrow materials.
