Holy Vacation, Batman!

Vote 0 Votes

Quick, to the tradeboard!

I need your help Robin! I need to get out of Gotham for awhile, but I need someone to keep an eye on the city for me! It would only be for a couple of hours a night next week. Specifically:

Thursday, July 26th, 5-9pm &
Friday, July 27th, 5-6.

Even if you are already working those days, prowling the city for evil-doers, perhaps you could pick up a couple of hours fighting crime after dark? Every hour you are able to help keeps Gotham safer. Shifts are on the super-secret Bat-board!
Batman thanks you!

Breaks at the Desk

Vote 0 Votes

Hi All,

I just have a few reminders about working at the Circulations desks--B and 2nd:
1. Never leave the desk unoccupied. For security reasons, we can't have the gate unoccupied and risk someone walking out with books. If you are scheduled a break during the evenings and weekends, you always need to call a security monitor, even for 15 minute breaks!
2. Please stack books on the return shelves (behind circ) upright with the spine facing out, like you would on Level F. Only unbound periodicals should be stacked on top of one another, not books. Remember your Murder in the Stacks training!
3. Please keep an eye on the return shelves and make trucks up when needed. 30-60 books usually does the trick! (1-2 levels of a book truck)
4. Also please keep an eye on return bins, and retrieve material as soon as you can after it has been dropped. An over-full return bin can cause damage to the books!
5. Have fun! And if you have questions, please ask. We're always learning here at the University of Minnesota Libraries!

Hi all you beautiful summer people!
I'm trying to get a few days off in three weeks to go on a long camping weekend. And I need your help! Your mission, should you choose to accept it, would be to work:

5-9pm on Thursday the 26th and/or
3-6pm on Friday the 27th of July.

Both shifts are on the When to Work calendar, and you don't have to necessarily take both. In fact, I would be surprised if that were the case. If you have questions, please comment/email and we might be able to work something out (take a few hours here and there, etc).

This message will self destruct in 30 days.
