Customized Services provided by Subject Librarians

Subject librarians collaborate with faculty and students to develop services and collections to meet the needs and goals of individual departments and centres, in traditional and e-learning environments, both on campus and at a distance. Such services may include:
  • individualized or classroom instruction in information retrieval and research skills
  • reference/research consultation, including thesis consultation
  • conducting orientations for new faculty members
  • departmental presentations/workshops
  • facilitating the resolution of library-related concerns within each department.
  • The subject librarian assesses information needs and creates specialized information services and products, such as online information resource guides, or current awareness/alerting services.

    Subject librarians welcome opportunities to work with faculty on projects such as designing effective library assignments, integrating information technology and information literacy into the curriculum, incorporating links to course-specific Library resources in online course sites, and participating in departmental meetings or committees where issues related to the library or information needs are discussed. The subject librarian role may also involve collaboration on faculty research teams.

    If you need help finding information, using databases or other electronic resources or doing library research for a major assignment, you are welcome to make an appointment with a librarian.
