Student employees represent an important and critical part of the library workforce and help to provide great service to the UNLV community. Our goal is to offer a professional, respectful, and supportive working environment that is welcoming and inclusive to all who use and work in the Libraries – approachability, courtesy, professional service are expected of you and your co-workers. Strive to be aware of your working environment and the needs of patrons.
Library-Wide Expectations for All Student Employees
These expectations apply to all student employees working in all library departments and branch libraries and have been developed to help you succeed in your role.

Timekeeping & Payroll
In addition the library-wide expectations outlined above, each department or unit may develop policies, procedures, and practices related to specific aspects of employment and/or work expectations for their student assistants. Most student supervisors provide their students with a document or checklist that explains the policies, procedures, practices, and work expectations for the unit.
