Please be sure to wear your own name tag when at work. If you need a new name tag, please let Mary know so a new one can be made. Wearing a name tag is one of the Customer Service points that we are secret shopped on in the spring. The name tag also helps to identify you as library staff when in the library spaces so patrons can know to ask you for directions or help as needed.

The Staff Contact List is ready and available for you to print out or view on line . This list can be used to help you call around to find replacements for shifts as needed. You can find the list on the blog under Staff Stuff.
There is a new schedule format this fall. Walter, Wilson, Magrath, and BioMed libraries have all started to use the scheduling system When to Work. This is an on-line system that can be viewed from any of the computers. We will have a short cut installed, so everyone can find it easily and there will also be a print schedule for the transition. We hope that everyone enjoys the new system, When to Work and all the extras that it offers. If there are any questions about it, please let a supervisor know.
We are a little low on staff name tags. If you have worked this summer, please take a look around to see if you have any name tags at home. Also if you are returning from the summer off, if you have one with you from last spring, please bring it back. If you are in need of a new name tag, please let Mary know so a new one can be made for you.
Farewell! Auf wiedersehen! Good night! Today's my last day and let me say, it's been an awful pleasure to work with all of you and you will be missed. I'm sorry I won't get to see returning students and I'm sorry I won't get to know all you new students as well. I'm sure you're all really cool and I wish you the best of luck with the new semester and with the new job. There's a sort of steep learning curve, but if I can do it, you can do it. And good luck, Tim! I'm happy that you got the position! Take good care of those journals and books for me. I've had the pleasure of doting after them and repairing those that needed tender loving care. If you have any questions about binding, etc., shoot me an email; I'd be more than happy to help.
I feel sad leaving such a great job and great coworkers. I know my new job is a fantastic opportunity, but I can't believe I won't get to hang out here anymore. This has been my home for over five years. The university has been my home for over a decade. I'm going to miss it terribly. Take care! I promise to visit!
