Your Subject Specialist

What is a Subject Specialist?

The Subject Specialists will assist Postdocs entering Yale with services of the Yale University Libraries. Each Postdoc can contact a research librarian who will help with any academic work involving the Library and its collections. 

How can a Subject Specialist help me?

Your Subject Specialist will:

  • Keep you informed with periodic e-mail messages highlighting new resources and programs especially for students, as well as notices and timely reminders, such as extended Library hours during Reading Week and finals
  • Answer your questions about Library policies, procedures and services, such as RefWorks workshops and Borrow Direct
  • Assist with finding information for your research projects
  • Support you even when you’re not around (on vacation, or away from Yale doing research)
  • Help you when you don’t know where to start, or you can’t think of what to do next
