Student workers are essential to the work of the department.  Without them, our efforts in sorting, filing, end-processing, and relocation would be severely hampered.

We want student workers to find their time at Houghton Library to be engaging, fulfilling, and meaningful.

A positive Houghton experience begins with a positive hiring experience. 

At present, student workers are hired through the coordination of the Technical Services Librarian.  If there is need and funding for a student worker, please ask the Technical Services Librarian to initiate the process below.
