Technology and Graphics Services
Technology and graphic communication play a major role in how the Library interacts with students and faculty. Student assistants play a major role in both servicing the Library's technology and computing needs and communicating with students and faculty through print and through the Library's web site.
- Computer Lab Support assistants
- The Computer Lab Support assistants help Students, Faculty and Library Staff with all computer hardware and software located in the Library. Over 25 students are hired each quarter to staff the Learning Commons support desk on the 2nd Floor and the PolyConnect Lab/Equipment Checkout on the 1st floor. Both technical and customer services skills are needed for these support positions.
- Technical Support assistants
- Technical support assistants help troubleshoot hardware and software problems with technology throughout the Library, notably the hundreds of student and staff computers. Tech support assistants also play a critical role in helping research and develop new solutions for Library workstations and servers as the Library continues to evolve.
- Graphic Design assistants
- The Library relies heavily on print content, including signs, flyers, and other handouts, to communicate effectively with students, faculty, and staff inside the building. Graphic Design assistants play a major role in developing print content using Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign software and coordinatng with print professionals and vendors.
- Web Publishing assistants
- The Library's web site is a valuable resource for students, faculty, and staff looking to perform research, find information, or learn about the Library and its services. Web publishing assistants use HTML/CSS markup and more advanced programming skills to help with the development of web applications and the creation and maintenance of web pages.
