Library Copywork – Step 1

Get a Consulting Reference Librarian

  • A consulting reference library MUST be assigned to your project before you can check out the project with the Circulation department.  This librarian will be your primary contact for
      • locating sources,
      • helping with interlibrary loans,
      • waiver of circulation rules, and
      • any problems you may encounter in the process.
  • An editor should contact Linda Stephenson with the projects BEFORE the assignments are given to the students.
  • Linda will make the assignments, notify the librarians involved, create the master list of projects with assigned librarians and notify the editor of which librarian has been assigned which project.  The editor can then give the assignment to the copyworkers along with the name of the liaison librarian.
  • It would be helpful for students to introduce themselves to their consulting librarian to find office hours and office location. For routine and easily answered questions (e.g. Do we have this journal anywhere on campus?), students should feel free to ask the librarian who is on reference duty.  However, for problems a student should go to his/her respective consulting librarian.  (Please note that on Saturdays, there is just one librarian on duty so when possible, the students should try to work on the projects during the week when his/her own assigned librarian is available.)
