Work Study at the Library

The library offers exciting employment and learning opportunities. We are one of the largest student employers on campus, employing approximately 26 students during the fall and spring semesters to work as Library Assistants. Each year we hire approximately 10-12 new students, and we also hire one or two students to work summers and during semester breaks.

Library Assistants perform a variety of tasks that are vital to the general operation of the library. They staff the Service Desk, help patrons locate materials and use online resources, shelve books and journals, and assist the librarians. Student employees learn to use the library more effectively for their own studies. They gain valuable experience working with fellow students, faculty, librarians and the university community.

To be eligible for employment, a student needs a work-study contract or international student funding. Students who receive a work-study grant as part of their financial aid package may be interested in applying for employment with us.

Interested and eligible students must submit an online application through the Student Employment Office.  Students can also pick up a job information form in the library and speak to a librarian.
