Yolanda Merrill

Humanities and Reference Librarian, Assoc. Prof.


I am Washington and Lee's humanities & reference librarian. I help students and faculty with their research, and teach classes in research methods and skills when professors request a visit. Call or email me anytime and I'll get back to you as soon as I can! I am at 540-458-8662.


Request a Course Guide / Class Presentation / Library Tour


FOR FACULTY ONLY: Please fill out this request form.

Students often encounter obstacles during their research. To help the student understand how to navigate our homepage and discover our resources, I can

  • visit your class and present a research guide on the topic of the course.
  • create an online research guide without coming to your class.

Here is an example of a course guide: WRIT 100: The Good Wife

Note: I also give library tours to familiarize students with the library and its services.

Exhibit Ideas?

As the coordinator of exhibits in Leyburn Library, I am always looking for new ideas and/or participation. Please contact me with topics you'd like to see highlighted in our exhibits. They can be related to academic life, student life, athletics, celebrations, etc.
