Visit your International Collections Librarian for Library Research Abroad

Is this your first research trip to a new country or destination outside the United States? Visit your area studies librarian in advance, before you go. Your area studies librarian can help you identify and get in contact with libraries, archives and research institutes with library collections and resources that can support your research activities while abroad that will help complement the contacts and research partners your faculty advisor helped to set up.

Not sure which area studies librarian to contact? See the following link for countries covered by the expertise of your area studies librarians in Yale University Library:

And don't forget, that you will have full access to Yale University Library's electronic resources available to you while away from campus via your VPN account and a good internet connection. In addition, don't forget scan and deliver options for print journal articles or book chapters, which can be requested online via Interlibrary Loan to be scanned and delivered to your Yale e-mail address as attachments.
