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 acquisitions (databases, book collections, etc.)
