Subject Librarians

One of the things that makes Milner Library special is that we have subject librarians for every major! Haven't yet declared a major? We have an assigned librarian for you, too!

View our subject librarians list and our subject guides to get started. Subject librarians are here for you and we want you to contact us! Please don't hesitate to reach out at any time. Subject librarians can help you get started on a paper or project, find resources, format citations, answer questions, and more. If you contact us with a question outside our expertise, we'll always do our best to connect you to someone who can help!

If you need immediate help, you can also contact the Reference Desk for assistance. We're available on the Main Floor in the library and via text, email, chat, and phone. If you send us an email, text, or voicemail after hours, we'll respond ASAP.

Library Card

Your Redbird Card is your library card. Not only can you use it to check out materials from Milner Library, but you can also check out items at I-Share Libraries (other academic libraries in Illinois). If you go home for break, and another library is closer to where you live, you can return Milner items to that library and check out items from that library (in accordance with their circulation policies).
