Need subject-specific help?

Are you

  • having difficulty locating publications on a particular topic?
  • worried that you’re missing something?
  • drowning in information you don’t want?
  • having problems using a specific search tool?

When working on a paper or thesis you may prefer personal assistance over a group workshop. The Library’s subject librarians are happy to provide one-on-one consultation. Please feel free to contact your subject librarian directly using this directory.
