Personal Librarian Program

for Transfer Students

The campus libraries are here to support inquiry and learning, and library staff are dedicated to connecting users to Carolina’s rich and complex library system. The Undergraduate Library, along with librarians from across campus, is introducing a personal librarian program specifically designed for transfer students. Each personal librarian will serve as the go-to person for questions related to UNC libraries’ collections and services and can help students make connections across campus.

Several weeks into the fall semester, incoming transfer students will each be assigned a personal librarian, who will contact them at key points during the academic year to inform them of helpful resources and services. Students are encouraged to contact their personal librarians with research and library-related questions as needed.

Personal librarians can help students in a variety of ways:

  • Remind them of our services periodically via email.
  • Assist them in conducting research, locating information, and developing effective search strategies.
  • Help them navigate the campus libraries and direct them to new resources and programs.
  • Answer their questions about library policies, procedures, and services.
  • Connect them to university resources outside of the library.

Please contact Suchi Mohanty if you have any questions.
