Research Librarians help students, faculty, administrators and visiting researchers find information for their research projects.  They collaborate with faculty in teaching research skills, hold workshops, create customized learning experiences to support your assignments. See more Research Services.

Each research/reference librarian at NJIT is assigned as a liaison to a number of different departments on campus and acts as a single point of contact for individuals in those departments with more in-depth or subject-specific needs. More about the librarian liaison program.
