About Your Own Private Librarian


Welcome to the YOPL blog!

Your Own Private Librarian is a casual blog focusing primarily on search filters and database search tips. I am a expert searcher with more than 25 years experience of research and reference experience.


I created this site to share my knowledge and skillsets as a means of helping you do a better job at finding what you need quickly and efficiently. Also, this is a way for me to keep my search strategies at my disposal!

Let me know if you have questions, comments, or concerns about any of the blog posts.
