Did you know that the Smithsonian Libraries has eleven different libraries focused on natural and physical sciences? They cover everything from anthropology to zoology and are staffed by a team of expert librarians who are passionate about providing services and resources to our users at the Smithsonian and around the world.

Our librarians are crucial, trustworthy interpreters in a world where it’s difficult to source and vet information. They curate knowledge. They provide and leverage technology to make information widely available.

Typically, you can reach these experts in many different ways, including by emailing, but on Wednesday, September 16, we’re giving you the special opportunity to “Ask a Librarian Live!”

Librarians from some of our science branches--Ricardo Beteta Bond and Carrie Smith (Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute Library), Stephen Cox (Smithsonian's National Zoo and Conservation Biology Institute Library), and Bonnie Felts (National Museum of Natural History Library)--will share some insight into how they support scientific research, especially during this pandemic, and will answer your questions.

Registration is optional--you do not need to register to participate. However, by registering you help us learn about who is attending our programs, so we can better serve our audiences. You'll also get an opportunity to opt in to receive emails from us, including invitations to future programs. Register here.
