Brookens Library would not be able to function without our student employees. They process books, DVDs, and other materials, they help keep collections organized, they offer services at the library main desk and throughout the building, update our website, take part in decision making, and strategic planning. They add a student voice that helps us fine-tune our services so we can better serve the campus community, and simply put they help us keep the library’s doors open. It’s so fitting for us that National Student Employee Appreciation Week also falls on National Library Week.
We’d like to take this moment to express some gratitude toward each one of our student employees. If you’re in the library this week and see one of these extraordinary students , please take a moment to thank them for their hard work and for everything that they do for us, for you, and for UIS.
