Library jobs for students


Vacancies - Casual Staff
Extra “Quiet and library environment enforcement” patrollers wanted for May and June

The David Wilson Library is recruiting students of the University for “The Quiet and Library Environment Patrol”, so that we can provide additional patrolling during the summer examination period. The work involves patrolling all areas of the David Wilson Library building for an hour at a time to help maintain a quiet environment and to enforce the “no eating” regulation. The patrolling person will issue a “yellow card” to those users who are creating a noise, using a mobile phone outside a designated Phone Zone, or eating /drinking in the Library. They will make a record of the user’s name and Library card number, and pass these details to a designated member of Library staff. Patrollers must be prepared to work during the exam period and are required for the following weeks:

Tuesday 4 May to Friday 4 June

Duties are arranged on a rota basis to cover the following hours:

11.00am until 9.00pm Monday to Friday
9am to 5pm Saturday
12noon to 6pm Sundays

Pay will be at the casual rate of £6.98 per hour.
Staff will be required to wear a tabard or t-shirt.

You must have excellent interpersonal skills and be able to adopt an assertive but non-aggressive approach to resolving difficult situations. You must also be available for training at an agreed time during office hours.

To apply for this post we would like you to fill in the University Support Application form which can be downloaded from the following website

Library publishing services

The Library offers several services to help you publish and disseminate your research. We can help you publish reports, journals and conference proceedings. We also support the publishing of digital collections.

Research publications The Library can help you to publish one-off reports in an open access format. See this example from the SAPPHIRE Group in Health Sciences.  If you want to start a new open access journal or conference proceedings, we have our own version of Open Journal Systems (OJS). This is journal management and publishing platform for academic publications. Articles published through this system are free to any reader, and no APCs are charged to authors. 
Please contact Library Research Services for more information: librarians@le.ac.uk

Finding our training

I had some feedback last week that searching PROSE is not the easiest way to find out what library training is on offer.

We sympathise with you! An alternative is to look at the list of training on our Researchers page

Or you can look at brand new guide to the Postgraduate Researcher Workshop Programme

If you have any questions about the training please email Selina or myself: librarians@le.ac.uk
