Featured Librarian: Linda Hulbert

It’s time to feature another UST Librarian! Linda Hulbert wears many hats around UST Libraries; as both a subject liaison and the Associate Director of Collection Management and Services, she oversees quite a few resources.  Let’s see what she has to say about her favorites…

  1. What departments are you a liaison for? Political science and General
  2. What resource – in your topic area – do you think is the coolest?
    OK!  I love The New York Times Historical.
  3. What’s one cool thing that resource can do?
    I don’t know that it’s the best resource for my students who work in the area – but I do know that it is so cool to have current events and see when the first time certain terms were used – like suicide bomber.  I love the fact that you can look at how the country was looking at events contemporaneously – like the Civil War.  For my political science research, I also really like the papers in CQ Researcher.

Getting to know Linda:
