Personal Librarian Program

The Drexel Libraries is in its third year of offering the Personal Librarian Program.  The program is off to a successful start this quarter. Each freshman is assigned a library staff member who serves as the student's primary contact for the library during the first year. Students may call, email, or meet with their personal librarian for assistance in getting started with research and using library services and resources.

During New Student Days, each freshman received an introductory letter from his or her personal librarian. The Libraries also sponsored a jumbled word scavenger hunt, providing students an opportunity to become familiar with the library and to meet the personal librarians who helped staff the event.

In addition to research support, students receive timely news from their personal librarians throughout the term. Recently, students were reminded to prepare for their upcoming English 101 library session by completing the library research tutorials and exercises available online and in their Blackboard course shells.

Already,  27 students have contacted their personal librarians for help, a number as high as last year’s total participation.  Inquiries ranged from requesting a tour of the library buildings and overview of e-resources to receiving help with locating a course textbook on reserve.

Throughout the year, students may identify their personal librarian by using the Personal Librarian Finder tool available on the Libraries website.
