National Student Appreciation Week celebrates the contributions and achievements of student employees who work while attending college. During National Student Employee Appreciation Week the Rutgers University Libraries take this opportunity to recognize and thank our student employees for their valuable contribution to the libraries and the Rutgers community.

The Rutgers University Libraries employ over 400 student workers. These workers are essential to the daily success and operations of our libraries. In every department within our library system you will find a student worker assisting us with our daily operations. Our student employees help by answering phones, retrieving materials to process patron requests, scanning materials for digital projects, assisting patrons with library research, monitoring our study halls, shelving and sorting materials for the library stacks, assisting in the preservation of the library collection, and supporting circulation services and computer systems.

To all the student employees of the Rutgers University Libraries - we appreciate your hard work and the enthusiasm you show every day. A job well done!
