This article reports that the Scopus Student Ambassador (SAm) program, funded by Elsevier, permitted the University of Connecticut (UConn) Libraries to hire graduate students to teach citation searching, using both Scopus and Web of Science, to other graduate students. The training does not cost the libraries anything, and it is free for graduate students, benefitting both UConn Libraries and UConn graduate students. The peer-to-peer training model used can be replicated in many types of libraries. UConn's primary campus is located in Storrs, with five regional campuses statewide and separate schools for law, social work, medicine, and dentistry. The library has a strong liaison program that provides personal contact to majors and graduate students as well as faculty in virtually all disciplines; this program currently features 37 librarians at six campuses.
