The Personal Librarian Program is designed to introduce medical students entering the College of Medicine to the Harriet F. Ginsburg Health Sciences Library. During orientation, each first year student will be matched with a faculty librarian who will work with students primarily throughout their first two years at the COM.

Librarians will serve as an individual point of contact for the Health Sciences Library and will assist students with:

  • searching the medical literature as part of the first and second year FIRE modules or for any research projects during third and fourth year
  • finding evidence-based answers to clinical questions that arise during students’ patient encounters as part of the first year Practice of Medicine module

The Personal Librarian is a student’s go-to person for any questions about the library in general or about their research needs in particular.
