Stacks Maintenance Student Assistant
Student assistants in Stacks Maintenance ensure the integrity of Ekstrom Library’s book collections by regular shelving, shifting, shelf-reading, and a variety of special projects. The schedule is between 10-20 hours per week, on weekdays from 9AM to 5PM. As student staff, you will occasionally help patrons while you are working in the stacks, but the job is mostly assigned, independent work – great for a student who likes to concentrate without a lot of interruptions. You’ll also learn how to navigate the complicated library collections like a pro – a big benefit for any serious student!
