First Year Student Librarians

Get paired with a librarian to guide you through your first undergraduate year at Harvard and help you make the most of the library's resources.

Are you a member of the Class of 2022? Sign up to get paired with a First Year student Librarian (FYL) to help you make the most of the libraries at Harvard.

Your FYL is your main library contact for your first-year at Harvard and can provide tours, consultations and referrals as you begin exploring areas of research interest and writing research papers for classes.

This pilot program, staffed by 17 library staff members, is serving nearly 200 first-year students for the 2018-2019 academic year.
