Orienting Yourself: A Guide for New Physics, G&G, and Astro Grad Students: Home

Welcome to Yale! This guide contains resources, tips, and tricks for getting started with your graduate-level research at Yale.


Welcome to Yale!

This guide replaces a paper handout that I once gave to students about what I can do for you at Yale. It contains information and links to key resources that will help you settle in over the next few months, so please bookmark it!

  • A guide to the services that I offer as your subject librarian.
  • Information on how to contact me to schedule a one-on-one or group appointment.
  • Quick tips information: How to browse in the catalog, find dissertations & theses, and use some of our databases' additional features.
  • Links to borrowing policies, our guide on how to find things we don't have, and subject-specific guides.

Subject-Specific Research Guides for You

Guides I curate on subject-specific resources can be found below. Some will be useful to you personally, and others — like the guide for nonscientists — will be essential if you are TAing a course in which nonscience major undergrads are writing papers.
