Orienting Yourself: What New-to-Yale Researchers in Physics, Earth & Planetary Sciences, and Physics Need to Get Started: Home

Welcome to Yale! This cross-disciplinary subject guide is designed to get you familiar with the research resources we have available for you at the university, including our collections, our people, and our institutional partners.

COVID-19 Updates

Due to COVID-19, library services have been altered to facilitate social distancing. Right now, many library locations have opened for limited hours. Members of the Yale community have a choice between contactless and mediated checkouts, and many study spaces are available. Librarian consultation services, workshops, and instruction remain remote until further notice. 

For up-to-date information, please visit the Library's statement on COVID-19.

This guide contains important information about connecting to a variety of library resources. In addition to the content on the guide, let me stress:

  • QuickSearch Books+ has faceted searching. If you are only looking for online content, after searching, please select "Online" under format. The Library has made significant updates to QuickSearch to facilitate users who need online-only materials.
  • Library staff are still here to support you in your teaching, learning, and research. Please contact me using the information on my profile (below). You may email or schedule a Zoom appointment.
  • The Yale University Library is transitioning from VPN-mediated access to a tool called "EZProxy" to help you access materials more seamlessly. Please visit this site for questions about the new authentication system, but for the majority of our online resources, you will now be sent to an authentication screen and you will not need to use VPN.

We have a purchase request form if you need something that is not currently available.

Welcome

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.
