Library Student Employee Appreciation Day, April 25

With sponsorship from ULSAC, MULSA, and the Libraries we are once again going to celebrate Library Student Employee Appreciation Day.  The celebration will be Thursday, April 25th.  There will be a cookie reception in the Ellis Staff Lounge from 2pm to 3:30pm that day.  We encourage you to meet up with your students and come with them to partake in some cookies and let them know your appreciation for all that they do for us.  We will also again be sending boxes of cookies to all of the specialized libraries and off-site locations so that you can celebrate with your students in your space.

Supervisors, please forward the below invitation to your student employees.

Please join the University Libraries Student Advisory Council (ULSAC), the MU Libraries Staff Association (MULSA), and the University Libraries in celebrating you, our wonderful student workers.

We will be hosting a Reception featuring cookies for you on Thursday, April 25th from 2pm to 3:30pm in the Ellis Library Staff Lounge.  Please drop in between classes for cookies and some conversation.  We will also send cookies to each Specialty Library and off-site location for students who do not work in Ellis Library.

The Libraries truly could not operate without our student workers!  Thank you for all you do!

New Circulation/Reserves Staff Hired!

Good news!  We have filled the two, new part-time positions in Circulation/Reserves!  As I mentioned in an earlier Snippets, we took the full-time position vacated by Carri Huff and turned it into two part-time positions.  We hope that the difficulties of working the late night and weekend shifts may be better absorbed by two part-time people. Each person will work 24 hours per week. Their specific hours will be determined after they begin. Our new staff members will be:

Greg Allendorf – who is a current Ph.D. student in Poetry at Mizzou.  He has been a TA in the English Department and has taught a number of courses over the years. His start day will be Tuesday, 12 March.

Alisa Pappas will start work the following week on Thursday, 21 March.  Alisa is currently a graduate student in the School of Information Science & Learning Technologies (SISLT). She has a son in elementary school and is currently working part-time at Daniel Boone Regional Library.  She wants to focus on academic libraries, so she was excited to turn in her resignation there to begin working here.

Many thanks again, to Eric, for stepping up and working the late shifts during Carri’s absence.  Thanks to Peter and Karen, as well, for working late on Fridays.

–Cindy Cotner
