When can I expect a response?

Are you a first-year student???
Then you have a "First-Year Personal Librarian"
Also known as FYPL (pronounced "fipple"), your personal librarian is there to help you with becoming acclimated to college research and to answer any questions that you may have as you conduct research.
Please feel free to contact your FYPL with any questions!
Students are assigned a FYPL based on their last name.
