What to do
If you're interested in working for the library as a student employee, please follow these steps:
1. Complete paperwork at the Financial Aid Office to determine if you're eligible for the student work study program. Only students eligible for work study may work in the library.
2. Once you've confirmed that you are eligible for work study, get an application. You can pick one up from the 1st floor Access Services desk or download one from the box on the right.
3. Fill out the application as completely as possible. Keep in mind that a position in the library often has specific needs (for example, the position requires a student to be available to work in the evenings or on weekends), so make sure you answer those questions honestly.
4. Turn in the application to the 1st floor Access Services desk. Your application will be kept on file.
Once an opening occurs in the library, the supervisor in charge will review the applications on file in the 3rd floor Library Administration office and will contact students for an interview. If a position does have specific requirements, only those students who fit those requirements will be contacted.
Each unit in the library is responsible for hiring its own student workers, so it's possible you might hear from more than one person in the library. Positions are available most frequently at the start of each semester, but on occasion an opening occurs during the semester or over the summer.
