Librarians and Guides

Did you know there is a librarian assigned to every academic discipline on campus? And they can help you find resources in that area? So whether you need to dive deeper into history or psychology or law, there is a librarian who can point you in the right direction. Find their contact information by discipline here

Along with librarians for each discipline, there are typically guides (mini curated websites) created by those librarians regarding topics and resources in that field.
