Stewart Memorial Library

Personal Librarian

Stewart Memorial Library provides each student with a personal librarian.  

Students are encouraged to get to know their librarian and reach out for help with all research and library-related questions, including developing a search strategy, brainstorming search terms, navigating library resources, selecting a database, finding full text, and rating a source's authority. Librarians are assigned based on a student's FYS class or declared major.  Your assigned librarian may change from one year to the next, but you are always welcome to continue meeting with your original personal librarian.
