MSU Libraries Student Employee Handbook.
Delgado, LaDonne; Breland, June, Ed.; Turner, Susanna, Ed.
This manual was designed to give student employees of the Mitchell Memorial Library at Mississippi State University an understanding of what to expect from faculty and staff, and what is expected of all student employees of the Library. In general, the manual is aimed at helping student employees: develop a philosophy of service and promote a friendly service-oriented attitude; fulfill all designed tasks; become aware of the nature of the library patron's needs; make clear the student employee's limitations in assisting patrons; ensure that library patrons receive adequate assistance; and increase the student employee's own knowledge about the library and the resources available in the support of their own library needs. The manual is divided into 16 sections including: (1)"Dean's Letter of Welcome"; (2) "Vision Statement"; (3) "Mission Statement"; (4) "Philosophy"; (5) "Brief History of the Library"; (6) "General Information"; (7) "Getting the Job...and Keeping It"; (8) "Expectations"; (9) "Conduct"; (10) "Work Etiquette and Protocol"; (11) "Library Procedures"; (12) "Materials' Classification and Shelving Systems"; (13) "How to Locate Materials"; (14) "Electronic Databases"; (15) "Library Organization"; and (16) "Glossary of Common Library Terms and Abbreviations."
