Originally we began this On-Call Reference program assuming
that we’d have a SLIS student working at the Reference Desk in the afternoons.
Given that our Part-Time Reference Assistant has the same qualifications (MLS)
as our Part-Time Reference Librarian and given that they both use the Subject
Liaisons rather than On-Call Librarians when they have questions, there is no
longer a need for librarians to be on call in the afternoons. I have spoken with
Lewis, Sally, and the Reference Librarians (full-time and part-time) and we’ve
agreed to cancel the On-Call program for the rest of the semester.

 

We do still need backups for the students who work at the Reference
Desk from 10am to Noon M-F, so Renee and I will be the regular backups for
them. On the occasions that both of us are out during those times, we will ask
for someone to cover the shift in an on-call format.

 

This should relieve the librarians of one minor scheduling
concern and make things easier for everyone.
