I am the department's contact in Alexander Library for British and American history, American studies, and the history of science. In that capacity I meet with faculty and students to discuss finding and using history sources at the Rutgers Libraries and beyond. Also get in touch if you want to suggest resources to add to the Libraries collections or to bring a history class to the library for library instruction. If you have any questions or problems regarding any library resources or services, please call, email, or drop by.
