Student Employment Information

Student Employment

Most library student assistant positions are filled during the first three weeks of the Fall semester. Additional hiring is done on an “as needed” basis throughout the year. Students are welcome to turn in employment applications at any time to be kept on file in case a student position becomes available during the year. Application forms should be updated each semester/session to reflect the student’s changing class schedule and hours of availability.

Hours vary depending on the needs of each library unit. Work shifts are available seven days a week beginning as early as 8:00 a.m. or ending as late as 12:00 a.m. Examples of Library Student Assistant Jobs vary from unit to unit, including work in the branch libraries and museums.
