Welcome to Carnegie Mellon!!

New to Carnegie Mellon or the CMU History Department?

I'm so glad you've chosen Carnegie Mellon and the History Department for your studies! Welcome to the campus, and welcome to a library guide that I hope will be of help to you during your time here. Each department at Carnegie Mellon has a librarian that is responsible for specialized reference services, class instruction in library resources, and managing the book and journal budgets. My name is Charlotte Price and I am the librarian for the history department (as well as Modern Languages). I am based in Hunt Library (the Social Sciences and Humanities library). Don't hesitate to ask for help at any point in your career here!


What Does a History Librarian Do?

At Carnegie Mellon, each department and/or school has a librarian assigned to it.  As the librarian to the history department, I buy the history books for the library.  I also prepare library guides (like this one!) that help users understand what resources we have for their research and teaching interests.  Upon request, I also can do instruction sessions on particular history topics or resources.   In addition, I explain and inform the history faculty and students about library policies and other related library information they need to know.  I am available, by appointment or via email, for research consultations, helping you find the best resources for your topic or how best to use the resources that we have.  I also  serve on several library committees and  work on library projects when necessary.
