Reference Desk Hours
I am an MLS student conducting a survey on how academic libraries staff
their reference desks. Could you tell me what hours the reference desk is
staffed and if it is staffed by librarians along with paraprofessionals or
just by librarians?
Thank you for your help!
Our reference desk is staffed Monday through Friday, 8:15am-4pm, with Reference Assistants (paraprofessionals). It is staffed with student workers 4 pm-Midnight, Monday through Thursday. It is not staffed on Saturday. Student workers are available from 12pm-12am on Sundays.
Perhaps unique to our reference desk, for the past year we have worked out of the Circulation Desk.
We would love to hear the results of your survey!
