Librarians by Academic Department

Each academic department at Appalachian State University has an assigned library faculty member who is your first point of contact for your curricular, research, and technology needs. Your librarian is a resource for subject specific research support and collaboration, University Libraries’ digital and print collections, library instruction for your courses, and so much more.
