Phil Taber


Business/Hum. and Lang. Librarian
UNB Saint John

I've been a librarian at UNB since 2015.  I'm responsible for the Faculty of Business and the Department of Humanities and Languages on the Saint John campus.  I am also responsible for the Saint John library's Science Fiction & Fantasy research collection.  I provide research and information literacy instruction in classes, I work individually with students on research projects, and I manage the scholarly resources for students and researchers in Business, Humanities & Languages.

I received an MLIS from Dalhousie University in 2012, and a BA in English and History of Science from the University of King's College in 2009.  My areas of reading and research interest include university supports for rural and first-generation undergraduates, and library outreach to residence students.

My non-library interests include small-scale farming, the history of roads and road-building, colonial settlement and agriculture in the Maritimes, and suspenders (which, I assure you, are superior to belts).

If you need help with a research assignment, or just have questions about the library, please don't hesitate to contact me! I'm happy to meet with students and faculty in person in the Hans W. Klohn Commons, anywhere on the Saint John or MBA campuses, virtually through Teams, or by email. My working days are Monday-Friday, but my specific available hours are subject to change.  Feel free to drop by my office, HWK116.
