Students comprise the largest and most culturally diverse segment of the library staff at many academic institutions. Library visitors'initial contact is often with a student employee. As a result, the interaction of student employees with library users frequently serves as a basis for patron opinion of the library. Libraries and Student Assistants professes the value of the contributions that student assistants make to libraries. It stresses the importance of recognizing the potential benefits, possible challenges, and major issues related to hiring, training, motivating, and utilizing students in libraries. In Libraries and Student Assistants, Editor William K. Black brings together chapters which may revolutionize the thinking of librarians who question the importance of student assistants in their libraries. The chapters assess the roles and examine the perspectives and expectations of both librarians and student assistants in order to improve relations and maximize student performance. Topics covered include: the history of the evolving role of student employees in academic libraries recruiting, hiring, and assessing student workers in academic libraries the student perspective motivating and rewarding student workers the international perspective of student assistants in libraries other helpful references and readings Libraries and Student Assistants provides a broad view of the role and importance of student assistants. Students who combine work and class instruction must balance job demands and academic expectations. While librarians as employers must understand the multiple roles that students are expected to assume, they also have the responsibility of maintaining effective organizations. This is achieved through offering a broad-based, responsive, and efficient service, as well as providing student assistants with a positive work experience and essential job skills. Librarians who supervise, manage, or frequently work with student employees will find Libraries and Student Assistants to be an essential reference for utilizing student employees and for dealing with specific problems which may arise. Students are often a critical element in the role libraries play; it is of paramount importance that supervisors, managers, and other employees provide them with quality training, effective work skills, clear performance expectations, and an understanding work environment.

Aimed at library science students and librarians with newly assigned administrative duties the book is about improving one’s thinking and decision making in a role as a library manager. Most librarians get very little exposure to management issues prior to finding themselves in a management role. Furthermore, most library science students do not expect that they will need to understand management yet they quickly find that there is a need to understand this perspective to be effective at almost any library job. Effective library management is about having some tools to make decisions (such as a basic understanding of management theory and how it applies in the library environment, understanding common traps we all fall into, etc.), knowing yourself, being able to motivate others, fostering a diversity (especially within workgroups), being able to communicate effectively, and having an understanding of one’s organizational culture. The book touches on all of these aspects of library management. Provides a concise understanding of theories from management, psychology, etc. and applies them to practical every day library issues Contains real world cases for considering how theoretical concepts might apply in real library-related situations Cuts out much of the extraneous material often found in books of this kind and focuses more on what you actually need

For many students, working while in college is a defining characteristic of the undergraduate experience. However, student workers often view campus employment as a money-making opportunity rather than a chance for personal development. Likewise, institutions often neglect to consider campus jobs as a means to education and student engagement. It is the distinction between work for remuneration and work for personal development which shapes much of the discussion of student employment throughout A Good Job. This book makes the case for campus employment as a high-impact practice in higher education and provides models for institutional efforts to implement new student employment strategies. Carefully designed campus employment opportunities can have numerous benefits, including career exploration and preparation, learning, and increased engagement leading to increased retention. The authors make the case that employment can and should be a purposeful and powerful component in any higher education institution’s efforts to support student learning, development, and success. This book is an excellent resource for anyone interested in capitalizing on the developmental and learning potential of student employment on campus.

Selected papers from the International Conference on New Computational Social Science, focusing on the following five aspects: Big data acquisition and analysis, Integration of qualitative research and quantitative research, Sociological Internet experiment research, Application of ABM simulation method in Sociology Research, Research and development of new social computing tools. With the rapid development of information technology, especially sweeping progress in the Internet of things, cloud computing, social networks, social media and big data, social computing, as a data-intensive science, is an emerging field that leverages the capacity to collect and analyze data with an unprecedented breadth, depth and scale. It represents a new computing paradigm and an interdisciplinary field of research and application. A broad comprehension of major topics involved in social computing is important for both scholars and practitioners. This proceedings presents and discusses key concepts and analyzes the state-of-the-art of the field. The conference not only gave insights on social computing, but also affords conduit for future research in the field. Social computing has two distinct trends: One is on the social science issues, such as computational social science, computational sociology, social network analysis, etc; The other is on the use of computational techniques. Finally some new challenges ahead are summarized, including interdisciplinary cooperation and training, big data sharing for scientific data mashups, and privacy protect.
