In 2005 Omaha Public Library abandoned their subject librarian department structure at the W. Dale Clark Main Library. Ten years later, OPL re-created a group of subject librarians with a new focus - rather than working primarily on collections and in-building services, these subject librarians engage outward to increase the library’s community presence in specific areas of need. Focusing on the areas of Homelessness & Poverty, Health & Wellness, Seniors, Business, and Genealogy & Local History, these librarians are creating connections in the Omaha community and acting as a resource for staff across the library system.
