Subject Librarians

How do I find my subject librarian?

Find your subject librarian by looking for your academic discipline. A list is available here: Subject Librarians @ Merrill-Cazier Library

What are subject librarians?

Each academic discipline at USU has a specific subject librarian with expertise in the research processes and resources of the field. Your subject librarian coordinates the acquisition of print and e-books, e-journal subscriptions, databases and other information resources. If there are any resources that you would like the library to acquire, your subject librarian can investigate whether funds are available for purchases or subscriptions. Subject librarians keep up with the trends in information sources for the discipline to ensure the library provides access to the resources that will support your research and curricular needs. 

Your discipline's subject librarian is also your partner to help students learn to find, evaluate, and use information ethically and effectively. Toward this end, your librarian can assist with developing library-based assignments and assessments of student learning.  They can provide instruction (either face-to-face or through interactive broadcast for regional campus classes) on how to use the research tools of your discipline and create research guides for students highlighting resources and search strategies for their research projects.  Librarians can also use Canvas to integrate library resources into courses and to communicate with students in your classes.
