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.


12 March- 17 March

I will be on vacation all week.  Please just do all that you know to do and be your normal amazing selves for those covering for me.  

Remember that there are some changes to the schedule for the week due to the musical.  The schedule is posted on the wall so you can see it.  PLEASE don't be late or miss a shift.  I will be around so you can reach me by text or email.  Don't hesitate to contact me if you need anything.  I will miss you.  

Remember to use the new list of things to do if you are just sitting.  If you do a job put a sticky note by the dry erase picture at the desk so others know what has been done that day.  Thanks!

See you on the 19th!


08 March

Next week is day of service.  If you are planning to be a part of a project and will not be able to be here for your shift (day time people only) I need to know by Friday.  So far, Becca is the only one who has told me she will be out.

Also, the week after that is the Special Olympics.  If you are working with that I need to know by the following Friday.  You will need to text or email me next week as I am out of the office all week.

I have added a new tab to the Handbook here online.  "Things to Keep You From Just Sitting at the Desk".  If you are just sitting you may be asked to check the list and choose a task.  You need to pick random tasks each time and not just do the same thing over and over.  If you have other tasks that you think could be added to the list just let me know.

For those who are scheduled to file newspaper articles, Faith has mentioned that they are not getting in the correct files.  If you are unsure where an article goes, just leave it in the basket. Thank you!

If you have read this- text me a gif of how your day is going.
