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.

  • We are ready to start promoting our Clue Live event and we need your help!  We need you to talk about it!  Tell people how fun it is going to be (it IS going to be fun), hang up posters for us, and just get excited about it!  If you could each take a poster or two and hang them around campus that would be very helpful.  Just sign up for where you are putting them so we are sure to have good coverage.
  • I would like for each of you to find a book that you have read that we have, and bring it to me.  It can be a children's book, a young adult, or an adult book. I am going to be working on a new display and want to feature some that your guys pick.
  • I have been working on our first training of the year.  It will be one that you do with me.  I just want to have a refresher on a few things that seem to be a little shaky coming back.  Nothing major or too hard.  Just some basics.
  • Please remember to put the date on the PASCAL stickers.  This is important for getting them back on time.  
  • I hope you know that you all are a very important part of the library staff team.  I know you are "student workers" but you are so much more than that.  Without you there are a number of things that we could not do as well as we do with you!  And just on a personal note from me- I adore you all.  You make my job so much fun!  I love working with each of you.  I love doing life with you on a daily basis.  You are amazing people and I am beyond blessed to get to know you!
