"In depression this faith in deliverance, of ultimate restoration, is absent. The pain is unrelenting, and what makes the condition intolerable is the foreknowledge that no remedy will come—not in a day, an hour, a month, or a minute. It is hopelessness even more than pain that crushes the soul."
-- William Styron

This week the library welcomes incoming students. We felt it was a good time to highlight a few links you might find handy as you start your studies at Yale.
First, there's our personal librarian program. Did you know every YSM, YSN, and YSPH student has a personal librarian? Here's a video about the program that we love, made by YSM students back in 2009:
- No. 2 pencils
- Notebook paper
- Scotch tape
- Pocket folders
