This LibGuide is intended to supplement your training as a library student assistant. Please review the following pages for resources on how to answer basic reference questions, read Library of Congress call numbers, and etiquette at the circulation desk. Avoid telling patrons "no", "I don't know", or "that's not available". If you are unable to answer a reference question please contact Reference and Instruction Librarian. You will be expected to reshelve books, search for books in the stacks, and shelf read, so being familiar with the Library of Congress call number system is imperative. While you are working at the circulation desk and answering phone calls, please be respectful of patrons. Remember, we are here to help! The following article describes how some patrons have library anxiety.
