Subject Librarians

A professional librarian with expertise in the subject area is designated as the liaison to each academic department. The librarians assigned to each department are listed below.

Research Appointments

Students or faculty needing in-depth help finding library sources for research papers and projects may contact the appropriate subject librarian listed below to make an appointment.

Purchase Requests

Requests for the library to purchase books, journals, and other materials should go through your departmental library liaison, who will forward them to the subject liaison. Each academic department has designated a faculty liaison to the library. If you are a new faculty member and are not sure who your departmental liaison is, contact your department chair. The library offers an e-mail alert system for newly published books in each subject area; contact your subject liaison to find out about signing up for this service.

Curriculum Proposals

The University Senate Curriculum Committee requires that proposals for new courses and programs be accompanied by a Library Resource form (revised 11/13/2013), which evaluates the need for additional library resources to support the new course or program. Please forward all Library Resource forms to your designated subject liaison for signature, allowing several days for a careful evaluation.
