Many people find libraries and librarians intimidating and that can keep them from finding the information they need or encourage them to turn to low-quality sources of information that are easily available on the Internet. The Personal Librarian Program is designed to help students who are new to UWF feel more comfortable using the library or asking librarians for help. UWF librarians will contact new students whether they are freshmen enrolled in college for the first time, students transferring from another college or university, or a graduate student who may have been out of school for awhile.
The Personal Librarian Program gives students a personal direct link to the library. The librarian who contacts you is a subject specialist in your area of study. While any of the librarians is more than happy to assist your, your personal librarian will be the one most familiar with the resources the UWF Libraries have to support your work. We hope this personal contact will encourage you to use library materials and services, and to ask for help when experiencing challenges finding information for your work.
Each new student should expect to hear from their Personal Librarian several times during the semester via email. We'll highlight services and sources that may be useful, but that you may not know we offer. However, if you need help, don't wait for an email - your personal librarian is there any time you need them.

Students enrolled in online programs need to research, but often feel cut off from the library and other UWF resources. The Online Librarian Program seeks to connect UWF's online students with the resources they need to be successful in their classes. UWF librarians will contact students enrolled in the online degree and certificate programs that they support to let them know what resources and services are available to them, including access to electronic resources, home delivery of print materials, interlibrary loan, and even remote access to software packages.
All students who are in completely online programs should receive an email from their librarian several times during the semester to offer assistance, to highlight library programs and services, and generally offer support with their classes.
