Library Information

Subject Librarians
Each subject area has a designated librarian who is available for one-on-one consultation. If you choose to write a thesis in History, the History librarian will be a great person to get to know, likewise for Spanish Literature or any of the other subject areas at Reed.
To find the subject librarian for an area, check out the Library Liaisons by Academic Department list.
