LSAs: Helping Libraries Do More!

Library Student Assistants help library staff reach more patrons, complete projects and extend service hours. You may have noticed our Library Student Assistants wearing black polo shirts as they shelve books, check out holds at the Circulation Desk or answer questions at the Information Desk. The Dunbar Library staff cannot thank them enough for all they do – and free us up to do!

One of the ways our staff thank their Library Student Assistants is by contributing to the Library Student Assistant Award fund via the Campus Scholarship Innovation Campaign each year. Staff pledges are matched by the Friends of the Libraries organization to provide eligible students each fall and spring semester with a $500 award – which can help with textbooks, room and board, and other education expenses.

Congratulations to the Fall 2015 Library Student Assistant Award recipients:

  • Jacob Kosch
  • Justin Overman
  • Adam Randolph
  • Brianna Rigdon
  • Krishel Stout

This semester’s recipients were honored a reception on November 6th. Supervisors shared stories of their Library Student Assistant’s accomplishments and contributions to University Libraries. Students were asked to invite close family and friends to share in the celebration.
