Factors Relating to the Employment of Student Assistants in Major American College and University Libraries.
Williams, William H.
This research project represents the results of 264 questionnaires received from United States college and university libraries with a student enrollment of 3,000 or more. The results show that while there is widespread use of students in a variety of positions with varying degrees of responsibility, there is little effort made to organize any form of training program; set standards for employment; or pay a standardized wage. In addition, few records are kept as to the length of service or their work performance. The author hopes that this report of the survey results will stimulate action toward the standardization of accepted selection and training procedures for student library assistants. The questionnaire and sample cover letter are appended. (Author/SJ)
