Student Jobs

Mardigian Library is one of the largest employers on campus. We have several departments, and students may work in one or more departments. Descriptions and phone numbers are provided below if you would like more information about particular departments.

To apply for a student job:

  • Download the application form. It is available in two formats: MS Word or PDF.
  • Return your completed application to the circulation desk.
  • Or, send the document as an attachment to scherger(at)

We receive hundreds of applications and only hire a handful of new students each semester. If a supervisor is interested in setting up an interview, he or she will contact you. If you are not hired this semester, please resubmit an application next semester. We keep applications on file no longer than six months.
