NOTE [May 7, 2013]: If you have filled out an application prior to January, 2013, and are still interested in a position at the Libraries, we ask that you reapply using the new form. WE HAVE FILLED OUR SUMMER POSITIONS, AND ARE NOW ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR FALL. If you are under consideration, we will contact you for an interview in late August. Thank you for your interest in the Libraries!
As an academic library, we rely heavily on our student assistants to help with many tasks such as processing and shelving library materials, and staffing public service desks at Burling, Kistle, the Burling Media Room and the Iowa Room. Students are hired to work in all areas of the Libraries and are directly supervised by library staff members. We tend to do the bulk of our hiring near the beginning of each semester, but occasionally have openings throughout the year. We accept applications for the academic year, as well as for all college breaks. Student Employment Applications are available online. For questions, contact Beth Bohstedt, [bohstedt] 641-269-3354.
