Posting a volunteer position
Send the online volunteer requisition form to email@example.com. When filling out the requisition form, please be aware that volunteer work assignments cannot include work functions performed by Library staff in non-represented (PPSM) or represented (union-represented) job classifications.
All volunteers must apply through VolunteerMatch. Once the completed applications are received, they will be forwarded to the supervisor who will set up the interview with the potential volunteer.
The supervisor will be responsible for checking the volunteer’s references.
Please familiarize yourself with the Volunteer Handbook.
Process for appointing volunteers
The volunteer hours reporting form will be due to LHRD on the first of every month for the hours worked in previous month. Either the volunteer or the supervisor can fill out the form, but LHRD requires the supervisor to approve and submit it. The supervisor can email the completed form to firstname.lastname@example.org; the email from the supervisor will be accepted as an electronic signature approval of the hours reported. It is imperative we document the hours our volunteers are contributing to reflect the consistent need for our volunteer workforce and for reasons of annual reports, etc.
A brief evaluation will be completed by the supervisor at the end of the first month of volunteer service, and annually thereafter at the time of renewal. The evaluation will help the supervisor and volunteer assess the work performance and will highlight the contribution to the department and the Library by the volunteer. As this is a pilot program, the evaluation process will validate the Library Volunteer Program ensuring its success.
Renewals/ReappointmentsAll volunteer positions must have an end date indicated on the Volunteer Requisition Form at the time of posting. Some projects may be short term and some may be more ongoing. This date can be extended but cannot be longer than one year. The ending date may be extended, depending on department need and performance, but cannot be longer than one year.
Ending the volunteer appointment
You may end the appointment before the agreed upon time for reasons such as lack of work, poor performance or violating campus or library policies. For more information on campus and library policies see the Volunteer Handbook.
Either prior to or on the volunteer's last day, the supervisor is required to send an email to email@example.com that includes the date when the volunteer's appointment ends. The supervisor must also collect the volunteer ID badge and return it to the Library Human Resources Department.
