Personal Librarians


I'm very eager to hear from you and look forward to meeting over coffee, for a tour of Sterling or Bass Library, or just a quick chat.  Please feel free to call or email me. While I don't have set office hours, I will be happy to meet with you at a mutually convenient time and place. 

How can my Personal Librarian help me?

Your PL will:
  • Keep you informed with periodic e-mail messages highlighting new resources and programs specifically for students, as well as with notices and timely reminders, such as extended Library hours during Reading Week and finals
  • Answer your questions about Library policies, procedures and services, such as RefWorks workshops and Borrow Direct
  • Assist with finding information for your research assignments, by helping you articulate your research question, identify the best sources, and formulate your search strategies
  • Support you even when you’re not around (on vacation or away from Yale doing research)
  • Help you when you don’t know where to start, or you can’t think of what to do next

Things we don’t do (but we’ll help you find out who can)

Your PL won’t:
  • Set up your computer (i.e. NetIDs, VPN)
  • Do your research, make photocopies or write your paper for you
