Reference desk duties:
Students on reference desk are here to assist researchers and assure security and safety of artifacts, documents, and books.
When a researcher comes in, ask if they have a researcher application on file. If they do look them up in the file and make sure the information is up to date. If they do not have an application on file, have them fill one out and ask them for a piece of ID to verify their identity.
Explain the reading room rules to them.
For our statistics to monitor which collections are most used, record collections and boxes accessed on the forms in the front of the Binder at the reference desk.
