Research Services Librarians for Faculty and Staff

Research Services Librarians (RSLs) are assigned to each academic department from the Case School of Engineering, the College of Arts & Sciences, and the Weatherhead School of Management. Research centers or other offices on campus may have an assigned librarian. Each librarian has background and expertise in the departments they serve.

Examples of how librarians can assist, include:

  • Finding a specific resource, item, or information
  • Effectively using an item, resource, or service
  • Narrowing down a topic
  • Citing sources
  • Organizing a research strategy
  • Providing alternatives to a research process
  • Giving a lecture about the library or assisting in assignment development that uses library resources (specific examples are in the Research Guide for Information Literacy Instruction)

Find the contact information for your Research Services Librarian or use the Research Guide created for your area of research.
