Information Librarians ​

Q1. What does an Information Librarian do?
Answer:

An Information Librarian provides an information service on a particular subject area. Each information librarian is responsible for specific subjects and assists academic and administrative staff as well as postgraduate students in finding quality research level information. Assistance with information retrieval is given and clients are trained in finding information. It is advisable to make an appointment beforehand with the information librarian responsible for your subject. In some of the smaller campus libraries the Information Librarian handles both subject and general information services.
