Asking for help at university libraries can be intimidating for many students; this presentation will highlight the uniquely supportive role of Personal Librarians to address this and provide undergraduates with welcoming points of connection. Princeton's Personal Librarian Program launched in 2017 after a similar program at Yale inspired library staff to bring this outreach model to their campus. Building on Yale’s model, librarians at Princeton found original ways to tailor the program to respond to the needs of their students and library colleagues.

Join Audrey Welber as she talks through the details of implementation, discusses pitfalls encountered along the way, and shared strategies that led to enthusiastic program participation by Princeton’s undergraduates.  Audrey will also share recent refinements and expansions to this initiative, including a subprogram supporting student athletes (at the request of the Academic-Athletic Affairs department), wildly successful "anti-procrastination" events, and a pilot effort focused on the needs of first-generation and low-income students.
