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.

(*changes made late night)

  1. We really need to meet, but I have another meeting this Friday at 3:30 so we will have to try for next week at 3:30.  I will put a reminder/sign up out next week.
  2. Please be vigilant about initialing the task sheet when you finish a task.  If it doesn't need to be done, then put a line through it so I know it wasn't just ignored.  When task sheets are finished on Fridays please place them on my desk.  Thanks.
  3. Colby, several people covered shifts for you.  I have those names and times if you would like to make up any of that time it just has to be done this month.
  4. Just want to make a public statement of encouragement to Mercedes.  You are doing a great job getting settled in and figuring out this crazy place.
  5. Dr. Shotsberger's  book is on reserve for people to read prior to the book talk the library is hosting.  You all are strongly encouraged to read it and take part in the book talk.  You can read it in down time at the desk.  It is a short book and not a hard read.
  6. I have been asked to remind you to not be congregating at the front desk.  Not that you can't talk to people, but be aware of the amount of time, noise level, and topics that you are discussing.  It can appear to others from outside the library that we are not working when we are hang out.  This is not just for you guys, but we have been talked to about it too.
