The UToledo Libraries want to provide personalized service to our undergraduates, especially those involved in intensive research, service, or creative projects. Our subject librarians have extensive knowledge of how information is organized and the best tools for locating, identifying, and acquiring the sources you need.
Our Personal Librarians program currently reaches out to Jesup Scott Honors College students. Each student will receive periodic (typically monthly) e-mails from their subject research librarian with news about new resources, how to use our research resources, or other relevant topics. Your Personal Librarian is also available for one-on-one consultation--an opportunity to get hands-on help with your specific research topic.
Our Librarians are trained Subject Research specialists in a variety of disciplines. We're happy to set up an appointment for a private consultation on your individual research interests. During a consultation we might
Contact a librarian in your program and we'll find a convenient time to meet in the library or in your office or lab.
In addition to its collections of printed books in our on-campus library locations, the University Libraries subscribe to thousands of journals and e-books from the top publishers of scholarly research. As a UToledo student, you have access to these wherever you may be doing your research... for free! Whether you find out about an article from your advisor, one of our research databases, through Google, or in a works cited list, check the library's resources to get the full text quickly and easily.
As much as we would like to, we do not have everything ever published at our library. However, if you identify an item that would be useful for your research, we will try to obtain it for you to borrow or (in the case of journal articles) to keep.
