We are looking for some stellar student assistants to work the service counters on both Upper and Lower Levels of the library.

Specific duties will vary depending on the service counter.
Student assistants at the Lower Level Circulation Desk will shelve and shift items in the circulating collections and assist in opening and closing the library. At the Upper Level Reference Desk, student assistants will monitor the online chat service, provide basic reference and technology assistance, and assist with closing the library. All student assistants will be cross-trained to perform desk duties on the both levels of the Library for when back up is needed.
