About UNB Libraries STEM team:
BARRY CULL, MLIS
Barry has been a teaching and learning librarian at the University of New Brunswick for over two decades, and is currently located at the Science & Forestry Library. He helps students and faculty understand, access, and use research and scholarship. He helps researchers use appropriate databases and other research tools and services, and is especially interested in motivating students to develop their creative thinking and deep reading skills, on paper and on-screen. This is also his ongoing area of research, and a selection of his publications can be found on his web profile.
TATIANA ZARAISKAYA, MLIS, PhD
Tatiana works with five departments in the Faculty of Science, including Earth Sciences, Mathematics, Chemistry, Biology, Physics, as well as the Faculty of Forestry & Environmental Management. Tatiana helps graduate as well as undergraduate students finding, accessing and evaluating scholarly research information. She provides virtual group sessions as well as in-person consultations on how to use academic databases such as Scopus, Inspec, SciFinder, IEEE and more, the citation management program Mendeley, and how to deposit research datasets into UNB data repository Dataverse. If you have any questions or need help with your research project contact Tatiana using any method outlined below at any time!

Saran has been the Engineering and Computer Science librarian at the Engineering and Computer Science library for nearly eight years. In this capacity, as the liaison librarian for the Engineering and Computer Science faculties, he provides instruction, reference and collection development services for the faculty, and both undergraduate and graduate students. In addition to his liaison responsibilities, he also provides annual workshops in patent searching and graduate seminars during the fall and winter terms.
