Library Student Employment Task Force
Summary of recommendations with comments on status

provided by Task Force Chair, Ann Jensen, 10/25/99
  1. Raise base pay for SLE's to at least $7.50/hour
    ACCOMPLISHED FALL99. THIS HAS LESSENED THE URGENCY FOR RECOMMENDATIONS #2-4 BELOW, THOUGH NOT ENTIRELY.
  2. Develop monetary and other incentives for longer employment.
  3. Remove 6-month delay for automatic pay increases.
  4. Give awards and other acknowledgements after long-tenure
  5. Commend Library staff for creating an environment in which students want to work and enjoy their work.
    THIS SHOULD BE DONE ON AN ONGOING BASIS - FROM LIBRARY ADMINISTRATION, LIBRARY HUMAN RESOURCES, INDIVIDAUL UNIT HEADS, ETC
  6. Analyze the work in library units, watching for ways to increase efficiency, use student library assistants more effectively.
    SHOULD BE A PRIORITY FOR EVERY UNIT
  7. Reclass student positions, when appropriate, easily and efficiently based on clear standards
    I AM NOT AWARE OF ANY CHANGES IN THE PROCESS TO RECLASS STUDENTS.
  8. Study training methods and other ways to increase efficient use of student library employees.
  9. Allow units the latitude to use their GA allocation in a variety of ways to accomplish the work of their unit, including hiring part-time casual employees rather than students, within well-proscribed limits, and while retaining opportunities for student employment.
    THIS HAS BEEN DONE
  10. The library explore creation of a public service training video which would give all newly hired students some common vocabulary and understanding about the library.
    NO ACTION - NO FUNDS
