Subject specialist librarians work with students, faculty, staff and alumni in every area of interest. They provide intensive, one-on-one support of students throughout their college careers, culminating in their senior thesis projects.
See this listing for librarians by subject area. Please email the librarian who best matches your topic area. In the message please include a sentence or two about your research question and problems you may have encountered.
In meeting with a librarian, you can get help developing a research question and beginning a search. Folks who are further along in the process can get advice on research tools, answers to specific questions, and new sources. The librarian drafts research notes ahead of time, adds to them during the meeting, and sends the results afterward. The notes cover search strategies, research tools, and references to important individual scholarly titles.
