Subject Librarians

Looking for essay or research paper assistance?

Each faculty has a subject matter expert for specific, in-depth research advice for your essay or research papers—or, topics that interest you. Make an appointment to meet with them in person or remotely ways if you cannot make it to campus. Subject librarians are an amazing source for doing research papers that require specialized research. They’re here to help students and love for students to contact them.
