Under the direction of the Manager of Library Services, performs daily operations of the Library Services unit in McKeldin Library, including the first floor Library Services Desk, library opening and closing procedures, maintenance and troubleshooting of public computers and equipment (e.g., scanners, copiers, and printers), and related functions. Provides public service to library users and other library staff members at the Library Services Desk, including communicating library policies and procedures.

Under the direction of the Manager for Logistics & Periodicals, performs daily operations of the Logistics and Periodicals unit in McKeldin Library, including ensuring accurate and timely completion of receiving and shipping tasks, processing and maintenance of periodical and microform collections, maintenance of records in the integrated library system, and providing customer service relating to these tasks in person, over the phone, and online. Collects relevant statistics. Primarily works Sunday-Thursday afternoons and evenings until close (generally 2:45 PM to 11:15 pm—adjusted when the library closes early such as winter/summer terms, spring break, and intersessions), though daytime shifts may be required.



Due to the nature of the academic calendar, annual leave cannot be used during the two weeks at the start and the two weeks at the end of the fall and spring semesters. This covers the critical periods at opening of each semester, reading day, and final exams.  These periods are when we experience our highest volume and are most likely to have student worker shortages.   Additionally, as this is the primary L&P student supervisor and to facilitate student hiring, annual leave cannot be used during the two weeks before the beginning of each fall and spring semester. Emergencies or other exceptional circumstances will be considered on a case by case basis.
