Library Assistant Team

Enrichment Units

The Library Assistant Team works with the Librarian to ensure a smooth-running service. Tasks are varied and will give you good experience of working in a library. You may be asked to scan books to issue them to students, contribute to the Library Newsletter, help other students to find books, assist students on the computers, assist at events or read and review books.
A fortnightly meeting will check in with all library assistants to iron out any issues, provide training and make any changes to the rota.
