Librarian Subject Specialists

To ensure that the library's collections are developed judiciously and interpreted and managed effectively, book selectors in the UC Davis University Library are assigned to each academic discipline or organized research unit. These Librarian Subject Specialists provide a wide range of services, including collection assessment and development, specialized reference consultation, and introductions to library resources for classes with intensive library projects. Members of the faculty are encouraged to consult with these librarians on issues pertinent to their use of the library for teaching and research.

Individuals from other campus libraries and collections can be found at the Campus Libraries & Collections web site.
