About the My Personal Librarian at Wes Program
The My Personal Librarian program is a a great way to help you learn more about Wesleyan and all it has to offer. The Personal Librarian program is designed to help incoming first year students, current sophomores, and transfer students new to Wesleyan with using the three libraries on campus and all of the the resources they contain.
Campus libraries can often seem to be overwhelming to students, and the librarians here at Wesleyan want to clear up any confusion or questions you might have about using our wide variety of resources when you need them for your research projects.
All first year students, sophomores, and transfer students are provided a link in their e-portfolio under "Library Services" to their own Personal Librarian. That link provides you with your Personal Librarian's name, his or her location, e-mail address, and how to get in touch before or after you arrive on campus. We are always happy to answer any general library questions you might have.
Think of your Personal Librarian as your personal "gateway" into the library system at Wesleyan. He or she can help you directly, will be able to direct you to a subject specialist (if appropriate) for research projects, learn how to use the library catalog, how to locate items (books, journals, music, DVDs and much more) in Wesleyan's libraries, or suggest ways of obtaining materials quickly should they not be available through Wesleyan. Take advantage of it!
