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 2023? Sign up to be paired with a First Year Librarian (FYL) to help you make the most of the many resources available through 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.
