Training and information for PRCs

Basics of the Job

If you started in Public Services, you will be able to move past this. If you are new to the library, it is EXPECTED that you will start on the following guides. Visit with Karlene on expectations and how much of it must be done before starting PRC work.


Who do I contact if I need to be out? Or need time off?

You will email both Karlene Clark and Meaghan Farrell if it is last minute. If you know ahead of time, speak with Karlene about adjusting this on the schedule. Librarians count on you being here, EVEN DURING TRAINING, as a first point of contact.

Do I need to attend Team Time meetings?

Yes! There are several reasons for this:

  1. Accountability
  2. EDI training
  3. Sharing and teaching with each other
  4. Guest speakers to teach you more about the library

Karlene will review student schedules to find a time that works for all PRCs. We understand there are sometimes extenuating circumstances, yet consistent absence would demonstrate a lack of respect to the team, and a lack of accountability - both of which are part of our Learning Outcome expectations.

Pre-Training Survey

Now that you have read through some introductory information about the program, we would like you to fill in your responses to the survey below. The survey asks questions on your viewpoints and expectations for your future semesters in a PRC position.

When you are finished, please post the document to Teams for Karlene to review.

Thank you! We are looking forward to a great semester with you!
