A New Twist on an Old Theme.
Marchetti, Honey
A work-study student assistant was employed at the Carnegie Mellon University Engineering and Science Library to help prepare documentation for a new library program. The student, a junior professional writing major, used the Apple Macintosh microcomputer to design a brochure, billing worksheet, and spreadsheet for the new program. On completion of the original project, the student assistant continued at the library 15 hours a week until her graduation. Her work included developing a circulation system training manual, designing screen panels for the online information system, and producing in-house publications using desktop publishing software. An unanticipated bonus for the student was the creation of a portfolio, to be used on job interviews with potential employers. (MES)
