Student Worker Handbook

Welcome to the Rickman Library student worker handbook.  This guide  provides the information you need to excel as a library assistant.  You are expected to thoroughly read and be familiar with the policies, procedures, and general guidelines presented in this handbook.  If you have any questions or suggestions, please let one of the library staff members know.



18 Sept. P.M. Edit- Instead of dusting this week, I would like for you to work on straightening shelves.  Pull books to the front edge of the shelf, tighten bookends so books are standing up tall and neat.  If you have any questions, just ask.

18 & 19 SEPTEMBER 17
Hello!  Hope you are having a great day.  I just have a couple of things that I need to share with you today.
1- Newspapers:
We have found that newspapers are being pulled too soon.  We want to be sure to leave 2 full weeks worth on the shelf.  We only take things OLDER than the most recent two weeks off.  We found several newspapers in the recycling bin last week that were from last week.  We want to be sure to give people time to read the papers before they are pulled.  We should only be pulling papers on Fridays.  Also, remember that the Wall Street Journal can just go straight in the recycling.
2- Shelving Quiz Results:
Congrats to all of you for getting perfect scores!  I am so pleased with how well you are all picking up on everything.  
Let's have a great week!
