Subject Librarians

Subject Librarians can:
  • help you find information on a topic
  • help you develop effective search strategies
  • help you select and search library catalogs and databases
  • answer questions about the library's resources.

The first priority of the UMBC subject librarians is to provide research assistance to UMBC students, faculty, and staff. We will respond to requests for research assistance from those not affiliated with UMBC as time permits. For general information requests, please contact us through Ask a Librarian.
