Where would a library be without its student employees? In academic libraries, the number of student employees, in real numbers,
often exceeds the number of regular staff. They assist users, shelve materials, and work as security staff; many perform very
technical and demanding work, or provide the coverage needed for long hours of access to collections and services (both physical
and virtual). Motivated by their appreciation for these unsung heroes, Baldwin and Barkley cover the basics of good supervision,
with specific reference to student employees in libraries: how to hire, how to fire, and everything in between. An unparalleled
compendium of facts, advice, and checklists.
