Note: Borrowing from other Michigan libraries through MeLCat continues to be suspended until further notice.

To learn more information, please see our FAQ page  and our policy on Personal Data Collection and Usage for Library Accounts.

Subject Librarians


The table below lists the name, office telephone number and e-mail address of the librarian who specializes in service for each subject area. Subject librarians offer research advice to individuals or university classes, and consider requests for purchase of new materials. The subject terms are linked to corresponding lists of electronic resources. Librarians with liaison duties for Multidisciplinary Collections and Residential Colleges are listed at the bottom of the page.
