Contacts for Subjects and Departments

The Library designates a principal contact for faculty and students in each campus department and program. As liaisons to the department, they provide information on library policies and procedures; offer specialized reference consultations; teach classes and individuals how to maximize use of library resources for research; and purchase library materials such as books, journals, and data sets.

A brief list of subject librarians is available for easier review and to print. The Library also offers contacts for academic support units, and experts at Affiliated Libraries.

You may contact members of the Library administration:

  • Elizabeth Dupuis (edupuis @ library.berkeley.edu), Associate University Librarian and Director, Doe/Moffitt and Subject Specialty Libraries.
  • Jean McKenzie (jmckenzie @ library.berkeley.edu), Acting Associate University Librarian and Director, Collections
