Find a librarian

The best way to find a librarian who might be able to help you with your particular topic is to think about institutions (colleges and universities, museums, or public libraries) that have relevant information. If your topic has a geographic link, you can try librarians in that specific place. Below you'll find more tips to find helpful librarians!


  • Find the organization that is specialized to your topic. Look for big organizations like university library sites, historical societies, or museums that may have librarians (Smithsonian, SFMoma, etc.).
  • Search for your topic along with the word librarian or library or museum or archives.
  • If there are scholars you keep coming across or you are particularly drawn to, visit the library website for their institution, which has likely supported them and their research.
