Welcome Print Page


What is the Personal Librarian (PL) Program?

As a part of your First Year Experience Learning Community, you have a Personal Librarian.  I will be visiting your classes to talk to you about things like searching databases for articles. I also have available video tutorials and short quizes on topics such as how to choose reputable websites for your research, and how to tell the difference between scholarly and popular articles and books. You can find the tutorials and much more here, on this library guide. 

I encourage you to visit the library and set up an appointment so that I may help you with any research you have to do. My contact information can be found on this page in the box on the right-hand side of the page, but just in case here it is again:
