Yale College Personal Librarian Program

Lindsay King

How can I help you?

In addition to being your Personal Librarian, I’m the Associate Director for Access and Research Services at the Haas Arts Library. I specialize in reference and instruction for art, history of art, drama, and theater studies. (Before I was a librarian, I worked in several art museums around the country, so I’m happy to talk about those experiences too.) In other words, I like helping people learn how to find stuff at the library, and I look forward to helping you! I'm also a Fellow and a College Adviser at Morse College. Feel free to stop by my office, email me with questions, or say hello if you see me in the Morse dining hall.

I will:

  • Keep you informed with periodic e-mail messages highlighting new resources and programs especially for students
  • Answer your questions about Library policies, procedures and services
  • Assist with helping you articulate your research questions, formulate your search strategy, identify, locate, and cite the best sources
  • Support you even when you’re away from Yale doing research

I won’t:

  • Set up your computer (i.e. NetIDs, VPN, software updates)
  • Do your research, make copies, or write your paper for you
  • Appraise your works of art like on Antiques Roadshow...
