Personal Librarian Program at UMMSM

The Personal Librarian Program (PLP) has been created by professional Medical Librarians at the Louis Calder Memorial Library as a way to reach out to students on the medical campus.  The program matches students with a librarian as they enroll in medical school.  Assignments are made according to the Academic Societies to which students are assigned as they are accepted in any of the medical school programs (MD or MD/MPH).  Personal Librarians will serve as a point of contact for the library.

Your Personal Librarian will provide you with the following information throughout your stay at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine:

New resources and/or services in the Library:

  •    New acquisitions (databases, book collections, etc.)
  •    Special Library hours during exams and holidays
  •    New study areas, facilities, or services

Answer questions about Library services, policies, and procedures and other Library-related information:

  •    Access Services (course reserves, electronic resources, printing, study rooms, etc.)
  •    Document Delivery (finding e-journals, ordering articles through Interlibrary Loans, etc.)
  •    Remote Access instructions
  •    Mobile access to resources/creating personal accounts in databases, etc.

Assistance finding information for research projects:

  •    Articulating good research and/or clinical queries
  •    Identifying the best databases to search
  •    Using citation managers (EndNote, RefWorks, and/or Mendeley)
  •    Finding additional resources

Personal Librarians will not:

  •    Make copies of articles for students
