Performance Evaluations

The mission of the Z. Smith Reynolds Library is to help our students, faculty, and staff succeed. We do this by providing unparalleled service in managing, delivering and teaching the use of scholarly content and information technology.  As a Library student worker you will play a vital role in providing these services.  Therefore, it is important that you make every effort to understand what your particular assignment requires, be as attentive to detail as possible, respond to those around you with courtesy, friendliness, and an attitude which says to others that you are willing to go that extra distance to see that their needs are met. It is crucial for you to work when scheduled so that the delivery of these services is not hindered by your absence.

After completing the first semester working in the ZSR Library, many of you will be invited to return to work the following semester, but renewal is not guaranteed and may be based upon factors including department needs, job performance and attendance.  Each year you will be evaluated on your work. Your supervisor will discuss your evaluation with you before it is placed in your file. A copy of the evaluation form will be given to each student worker.

         Qualities to be evaluated:

  • Quality and quantity of work
  • Job knowledge and initiative
  • Attendance and punctuality
  • Quality of customer services and/or attitude


         Supervisor’s responsibility to you:

  • Provide meaningful work experiences
  • Orient the student to the work area and provide the necessary training
  • Provide feedback, guidance and support
  • Encourage students to be responsible and to expand their knowledge of their particular job.
