Various reminders and some news

Hi everyone!

A few various reminders...

1) The door to technical services (into which you go to collect the mail and make photocopies) has a new lock on it. It still uses the same key but the new lock is tricky so please double check the door is locked when you leave (if you had to unlock it to get in).

2) Remember to keep statistics for Reference interactions. If someone asks you a question, remember to TALLY it!

3) Make sure to take a patron's ID as collateral when s/he borrows one of the books kept behind the reference desk.

4) There are mailboxes for the two new librarians, Amy Gilgan and Claire Sharifi, on the counter between the front reference desk and back reference desk.

Also, some news. You noticed when you got to work this week that your work station has been switched with the where the librarian usually sits. We did this so that you, the student assistant, can triage questions at the desk -- this means you will be dealing with the technological and basic questions more, and handing off more complicated research questions to the librarian. We found that the librarian was busy helping people print or make guest accounts when they should be available to help folks research. So please keep an eye on GoPrint 2 which tends to get backed up and keep an eye out for people with questions. Thanks! Let me know how you like the new set up.

Thanks for the reminders Kelci. Everything feels backwards with the new setup but I like it!

Thanks Kelci!
I did notice that with the old format, the librarians tended to get stuck with the age old "Where is the bathroom?" question(simply because people walked up to them first). So the new format should definitely remedy that!
