What's a Subject Librarian For?
You've been told it's important to know who your librarian is, but why is that? What can a librarian do for you?
"The role of a librarian is to make sense of the world of information. If that's not a qualification for superhero-dom, what is?"
Every class (not just your major!) has a subject librarian who can help you:
- Figure out your research question
- Make a plan for carrying out the research
- Find books, articles, videos, statistics, facts, data—whatever sort of information you need
- Navigate through the library website or the open web
- Get resources not owned by Southern from other schools
- Cite your sources appropriately
