Welcome to Yale! This guide will introduce you to some of the resources, collections and contacts that will be useful for your academic work in college. This guide is by no means exhaustive, but it should help to get you started using the Yale Library, and give you some suggestions when you're ready to explore further.
Begin your library searching at the main Yale Library website, library.yale.edu. Here you will find direct links to our catalog and databases, subject and course guides, your librarians' contact information, and practical information about library hours, study spaces, jobs, exhibitions and prizes. You will also find a link to Ask Yale Library, where you can ask a question and a human will respond (especially useful at night or on weekends).
