Introduction and Welcome

Dear Circulation Assistants:

Welcome to the Life Chiropractic College West Library. This basic online guide is intended to give you some sense of your responsibilities as a student employee.

Please contact your Circulation Supervisor or the Library Director if you have any questions about the guide.

Working as a Circulation Assistant requires a high degree of personal responsibility.

This guide is designed to answer many of your questions about your job and provide you with an easy reference.

We hope you enjoy the experience of helping the Life West Community to learn, study, and interact with each other at the Learning Commons, and we look forward to getting to know you as individuals and as a team.
