Personal librarians began working with first year students this year, introducing them to resources and services that will help with their work and enrich their thinking. They provide:
· First point of contact for all library and research needs
· Responses to your questions as they come up
· Information for leveraging the full array of library spaces, online and print collections, staff and services, and research strategies
· Ideas about understanding and evaluating articles, books, and other materials as you research
· Help when you are not sure what to do or where to start
· Support year-round even when you are away from campus
Subject specialist librarians work with students and faculty in every department and program. They provide intensive, one-on-one support of students throughout their college career and culminating in their senior capstone projects. To arrange a meeting, just email the librarian who works with the department in which your particular course is offered.
Students can get help getting started in developing a research question and beginning a search.
For students further along in the process, they can get advice on research tools, answers to specific questions, and new sources.
The librarian drafts research notes ahead of time, adds to them during the meeting, and sends the results to the student. They cover search strategies, research tools, and important individual titles.
