CSSSI Librarians: Home

Research support at the CSSSI

At the Center for Science and Social Science Information (CSSSI), librarians meet with undergraduates, graduate students, faculty, and other Yale affiliates to assist with all stages of the research process. We help researchers: 

  • navigate the Yale University Library's print and electronic collections
  • find, evaluate, and cite diverse sources for papers, dissertations, and presentations
  • prepare for research trips to other libraries and archives
  • conduct geospatial analysis
  • organize, share, and manage research data
  • measure the impact of their scholarship within a discipline or subfield 
  • and more!

CSSSI librarians meet with researchers through scheduled consultations (individuals or small groups) or during drop-in "office hours" in departmental buildings.We also collaborate frequently on research consultations, either with other CSSSI librarians or with other librarians and specialists around the Yale University Library system. We also offer workshops that are open to all Yale affiliates.
