Subject Librarians, by subject

Subject Librarians at Washington University Libraries strive to be attuned to the research needs of all Washington University programs and departments.


These are just some of the services your subject librarians can provide.

Collection Development
Develop, maintain, and manage distinct collections of greatest value to Washington University faculty and students. Support research and instruction by offering resources in relevant formats and languages.

Research Services
Consult with faculty and students about their research needs. Advise and instruct them about the library tools and specialized services that meet those needs.

Exhibitions and Events
Promote library services and collections to departments or programs. Assist in executing exhibitions and special events.

Teaching and Learning
Collaborate with colleagues within and beyond the libraries on delivering, planning, and assessing strategic and effective instruction and learning materials.

Research Data
Maintain a working knowledge of issues that arise during the research data lifecycle: conceptualization, analysis, visualization, management, sharing, and curation. Assist in identifying applicable tools.

Scholarly Communication
Inform and educate our community about scholarly communications, including open access publishing, public access practices, and options for publishing and sharing research.

Serve as liaison to faculty, students, and the community beyond WU. Identify, meet, and facilitate ongoing communication about users’ resource and service needs.

Contact your subject librarian or special collections curator to learn more about how we can help assure your success.
