Did you know you have a librarian?
There is a subject-specific librarian for every faculty or department at the university.
Your librarian is an information expert. When you're working on a research project they can help you ask the right questions, search in the right places, and find the resources you need. They can also teach you how to use the research tools in your academic discipline, and help you take advantage of the library’s many services.
Learn about Your Librarian by visiting our website and following Leddy Library on our social media channels. Each day we will feature one of our librarians on our social media channels to highlight interesting facts about each of them. Learn the facts, take the quiz, and you could WIN a $50 Amazon gift card.
