Personal Librarian Program

Your Personal Librarian is your University of Toronto library contact. The Kelly Library’s team of Personal Librarians help first year St. Michael’s College students and all USMC Faculty of Theology students. Our role is to make your life easier by helping you navigate resources and build your research skills.

That’s where we come in. Please contact Dave, Richard, James, or Noel as much as you like with any questions you have about your assignments, your research, the library system, or academics generally.
