Library Ambassadors

ETSU Library Ambassador Program

ETSU’s Library Ambassador Program is a two-year program, which entails hiring APS students each fall and offering them two semesters of information literacy training with a specific focus on learning the databases of their majors. After training has been completed, ambassadors are deployed in various academic buildings across campus and in the CFAA to help students with library research and to connect students requiring in-depth help to librarians.



Library Ambassadors can help you:


  • Define your information needs, and show you how to find background information on your topic
  • Assist you in determining the appropriateness of materials for use with academic assignments
  • Show you how to use the library databases to complete academic assignments using
    • Online databases
    • OneSearch
    • LibGuides
  • Refer your information request to a librarian if needed




Ambassador research help is available at various academic buildings around campus and online via Zoom. The  Fall 2021 online schedule is as follows:
