Subject librarians

In order to develop a close relationship between the Library and academic departments, to help faculty and students fully use the Library resources and services, and to help the library understand what they need, Fudan University Library has established the Subject Librarian System, by selecting and appointing subject librarians for some departments, who are responsible for collecting information from relevant departments so as to improve library service on specific subjects.
