Librarians for First-Year Students

First-year students are assigned a librarian to help you make the most of all the library has to offer during your first undergraduate year.

First-Year Librarians are the personal library contacts for first-year students at Harvard and can provide guidance, consultations, and referrals as students begin exploring areas of research interest and writing research papers for classes.

Are you a first-year student? Visit our Canvas page to learn more.
