Getting the chance to work with our student employees is one of the very best parts of our job in the Library. They actually keep us humming, we have 55 this year, and we literally cannot operate without them! The Main Library Information Desk assistants are on duty the 106 hours a week that the Information desk is open and the Music Library hours just shy of that. And as a matter of fact, from 5:00 p.m. on Fridays until 4:00 p.m. on Sundays, the Information Desk Assistants keep both libraries running smoothly without any full time staff present. Peer Research Assistants are on duty at the Main Library the same hours as the Information Desk Assistants, with the exception of 5:00 p.m. on Fridays until 1:00 p.m. on Sundays. We also rely on our Interlibrary Loan student assistants all through the week to assist that department process all incoming and outgoing materials borrowed for Davidson students, faculty and staff.
On Reading Day both semesters, we honor our students with a party with fabulous goodies made or provided by Library staff. Here are a few pictures from the party on May 5th. We LOVE our student employees!!!
