Library Assistant I

1. Definitions

This is the first level in the series. Incumbents in both public and technical services perform tasks requiring a working knowledge of library procedures and policies as they relate to the work assignment. A working knowledge of department and library activities, policies, and procedures is necessary and may be acquired on the job while in probationary status. Incumbents perform work that is routine and repetitive in nature. Tasks are well defined. In most cases, problems and their causes are easily identified. More experienced incumbents may be able to identify the causes of unusual problems. In general, problems will be solved by applying past experiences in handling similar issues with slightly different data. Guidelines are clear, well-defined, and applicable to the tasks assigned. Some employees may exercise personal judgment in interpreting them.

Work at this level requires the employee to choose the appropriate method from a limited number of options. Incumbents are not expected to develop new methods or procedures. More experienced employees may provide some input into the development of new or improved procedures or practices. The library assistant I is expected to be able to provide information to the library user that requires a working knowledge of library operations or to refer inquiries to an appropriate resource person and to use library computer systems as resources. Incumbents may schedule the work of and train student assistants as well as provide advice and direction to them. The majority of assignments (more than 50 percent) are at this level.
