One of the challenges in being a student worker at the public service desks of the Hamersly Library is controlling the number and length of personal contacts with friends and fellow students. We recognize, however, that some of your effectiveness as a public services student worker is based on your being a student- sometimes you are in the same classes or involved in the same activities as the students who need your assistance. They may be more willing to approach you since you are also a student. Library staff members recognize that and value your hard work and assistance to them and library patrons.
However, when you are at work, you are expected to concentrate on your work tasks. When your friends come to your work site, they may not understand that you are on duty. You are certainly welcome to greet your acquaintances, but you must limit the interaction unless the student has a question or needs assistance. Please focus on providing assistance to them rather than engaging in personal conversations. The trick is to get out of the conversation gracefully. You might look for an opening to state that you have to get back to work. Find a method that works for you. We expect that you will make an effort to control these interactions.
