Personal Librarians: Building Relationships Across Campus

Sep 14, 2023


Hear how Ms. Welber spearheaded Princeton’s Personal Librarian Program in 2017 and leveraged technology to strengthen and grow the program.  During her presentation, she will walk us through the program’s genesis, addresses the pitfalls encountered along the way, and reveals the solutions that led to its huge success among Princeton’s undergraduates. She also shares some exciting refinements and expansions to this robust outreach, including a subset of the program focusing on student athletes (requested by Princeton’s Academic-Athletic Affairs Department) and wildly successful “anti-procrastination” events. Get lots of concrete tips and ideas.
