Subject Librarians

All of the WSU Vancouver library faculty serve as liaisons to campus programs. They provide research consultation for students and faculty, instruction in classes on how to effectively conduct research, and purchase materials that support campus classes. If you want to arrange for personalized research help, see the list below for contact information.

Library Instruction

Library faculty at WSU Vancouver are available to meet with individual classes to help students learn how to use library and Internet resources for their research assignments. If you feel that students in your class could benefit from a session with a librarian, please contact the appropriate librarian from the list below or contact the Reference Desk at (360) 546-9686 or library@wsu.edu. Because librarians meet with many classes, it is recommended that you make arrangements as early as possible in order to ensure we can accommodate your desired time and date.

Collection Development

Library faculty provide collection development services for their liaison departments. As such, they purchase books, review subscriptions, and otherwise guide collection decisions in their liaison areas. Faculty are encouraged to contact their liaison librarians to discuss their collection needs. Input from the faculty helps the librarians build a collection that remains relevant to the curricular and research needs of the campus community. Librarians welcome purchase recommendations, discussions about expanding the collection in specific areas, and inquiries about the feasibility of database purchases. For general questions about collection development, please contact Karen Diller at (360) 546-9179 or diller@wsu.edu.
