Sumner, Shirley J.
This handbook outlines in logical sequence the duties required in operation of the Teutlen High School (Georgia) Library/Media Center in order to teach the student assistants how to perform routine duties to aid students and teachers in center use. Duties are listed in three categories. Under operational duties, topics covered are circulation control, returning books to and reading shelves, overdue books and fines, magazines and newspapers, typing, filing, processing new materials, and mending. Audiovisual duties listed include those relating to 16mm films ordered from the state, equipment, laminating, and nonbook material processing. Housekeeping duties are outlined according to whether they need to be done daily, twice-weekly, weekly, or monthly. Such duties include cleaning and the care of plants, the work room, stamp pads, and bulletin boards. Forms needed to perform duties are illustrated throughout and the appendices provide (1) student assistants' schedule of duties form and description of duties; (2) library media center use policies; (3) magazines and newspaper subscription lists; (4) Dewey Decimal System Classification; and (5) glossary of terms.
