Meet your personal librarian at our freshman library reception!

August 26, 2015

New freshman students will be welcomed to the Library on Wednesday September 16, from 4–5:30pm, at a reception hosted by their personal librarians in the Selin Courtyard, located in Sterling Memorial Library. The Personal Librarian Program pairs every freshman student with their very own librarian and is designed to introduce students entering Yale College to the collections and services of the Yale University Library. This is a wonderful opportunity for you to meet your personal librarian, enjoy some refreshments, and learn about the exceptional array of resources, collections, expertise and study spaces that the library has to offer.

Personal Librarians contact students occasionally throughout the year to let them know about new databases and tools, upcoming tours of collections or research strategies. They also encourage questions about research or the Library in general. Any questions about the program can be directed to Emily Horning, Director of Undergraduate Research Education and Outreach at: or phone 203-432-8211.
