Library IT debuted the redesigned web pages for the Personal Librarian program at the beginning of the Fall 2014 semester. The redesign includes a new template for staff profile pages (example here) and a new main page (linked here).
The redesigned main page includes:
- rotating images of librarians currently in the PL program
- a calendar of library-hosted workshops and tours
- a PL lookup tool to help students find their assigned personal librarians
- links to both the Divinity Library’s and Medical Library’s Personal Librarian programs
“The Personal Librarian program at Yale University Library is designed to introduce students entering Yale College to the collections and services of the Yale University Library. Upon matriculation, each freshman will be matched with a research librarian who will help with any academic work involving the Library and its collections, study spaces and/or staff. Students typically work more frequently with their Personal Librarians during their freshman and sophomore years. Once a student declares a major they will begin working with a Subject Specialist who will help with relevant assignments through completion of the senior year.”
