And the Access Services Student Worker of the Semester is…

Standard

Tyler Davis!  Tyler was chosen by the staff for his professional demeanor, friendly and easy-going manner, strong work ethic, and perpetual willingness to go above and beyond the call of duty.  For his efforts, Tyler will be rewarded with the people’s ovation, fame forever, and a Dunkin Donuts gift card to help propel him through final exams.

Thanks to Tyler and to all of our student workers for making this a fantastic semester.  Everyone has done such a great job the past few months, and it made the decision process a difficult one.  Of course, that’s the sort of problem that employers everywhere would love to have, so we’re not complaining.

Again, thank you to all of our great workers.  Good luck with finals, enjoy the December holiday of your choosing, and have a great break!

Student Worker in the Spotlight

Standard

As you probably know from visiting the library, our student workers are the best!  But they aren’t just great in the library — they’re doing good deeds wherever they go.

Corinne O’Neill, one of our Students of the Month for March, recently spent Spring Break volunteering in New Orleans.  She’s featured in the “Bryant Spotlights” section of the Bryant homepage today, so you can find out more about her Alternative Spring Break trip.  Great work, Corinne!

Congratulations to our Student Workers of the Month for March!

Standard

Our Students of the Month for March are Corinne O’Neill and Naomi Kamiya from the Access Services department, and Dhara Shah from Reference!

Thank you all for continually going above and beyond the call of duty, as well as for general awesomeness all around.

And thanks to the rest of our fine crew, too, for continuing to make us struggle to make this decision every month. The fact that you all do so well makes all of our jobs so much easier.

Congratulations to our Student Workers of the Month for February!

Standard

The Circulation Desk student workers of the month for February are Danielle Simbliaris and Tyler Davis, and the Reference Desk student worker of the month is Cassidy Rydberg.

Thank you, Cassidy, Danielle, and Tyler, for your continued dedication, willingness to go above and beyond the call of duty, and fantastic customer service skills.

And, of course, thanks to all of our student workers for continuing to make this a tough decision every month.  Everyone has been so awesome all year that it’s really hard to narrow it down to just two people in a given month (seriously, you should see the flurry of emails about this we all send back and forth the last few days of every month).

Not that we’re complaining… this is the sort of problem most managers would love to have, and we’re incredibly thankful!

Congratulations to our Student Workers of the Month for November!

Standard

The Student Workers of the Month for November in the Access Services Department are Rena Holder and Zachary Sullivan.

The November Student Worker of the Month in Reference is Mandy Phan.

Thanks to Rena, Zachary, and Mandy for their hard work, dedication, and dependability.

And thanks to all of our other student workers in both departments for continuing to make this a hard decision every month.  We truly could not function properly without each and every one of you.

Congratulations to the Circ Desk Student Workers of the Month for September and October!

Standard

Yes, that’s right, both September and October.  Everything was so hectic at the beginning of the semester that we couldn’t recognize anyone at the time in September, but decided that we should backtrack a bit.

So anyway, drum roll please…

The student workers of the month for September are Kristina Pittella and Regina Salgado!

And the student workers of the month for October are Carlie Alemian and Olga Bourtseva!

All four will be entered into the end-of-semester drawing for $10 in Bulldog Bucks and will have their praises sung (figuratively) on the blogs, Facebook, Twitter, and Axis TV.

Thank you Kristina, Regina, Carlie, and Olga for the awesome jobs you have done.

And thanks to all of the Circ Desk Student Workers for making this a legitimately difficult decision process, as everyone has been doing a fantastic job so far.  This is the sort of staff-related problem supervisors usually only get to dream of having!
