User Services Summer Training Series
User Services would like to invite all interested personnel to attend the User Services Summer Training Series. Each session will be given twice during the day at 10:30 a.m. (in 372B) and 4:00 p.m. (in 472B) to accommodate various schedules.  

·       June 13 – The Journey of a Requested Item – Matthew Kelly and Kelvin Summerville will present on how holds are placed and how those requests make it to the patron. They will focus on what desk staff need to know and be attentive to in order for this process to go smoothly.

·       June 27 – Introduction to Multimedia Booths – Kasey Kelm will provide a basic introduction to the multimedia players, equipment, and software available to our patrons. LOCATION: Hodges Reading Room

·       July 18 – Understanding Sierra Codes, Notes, and Messages – Sherryl Faulkner-Robinson will explain many of the codes, notes, and messages in Sierra records that desk staff need to know to do their job efficiently.

·       July 25 – Course Reserve Basics – Kathleen Lehman and Olivia Wood will cover the basics of course reserve options so desk staff can knowledgeably answer reserve-related questions from instructors and students. 

This training series is primarily targeted to individuals who work the service desks, but anyone who is interested is welcome and encouraged to attend!
