What is the personal librarian program?

Starting in the Fall of 2014, the UVic Libraries launched a Personal Librarian Program (PLP). This program is designed to introduce 1st year students entering UVic to the many resources, tools and services available through the Libraries.

Your personal librarian will contact you occasionally throughout the year to let you know about what the library can offer to help make your first year experience as successful as possible. You can also contact your personal librarian any time with questions about your research, essays and assignments.
