About this Resource Guide

Welcome to the University Library!

Student assistants are essential participants in the successful operation of the University Library. Without your assistance, we would not be able to maintain the hours and level of service we currently provide. 

This online resource is intended as a general guide for University Library Student Assistants. It is designed to accompany the training you receive and to provide you with basic and refresher information that you need to know. It also serves as a reference for the policies and procedures you need to be familiar with throughout your employment here. Refer to it as much as needed; often the answers you are looking for can be found right here.

Please feel free to ask your supervisor or another staff member if you have any questions.
