The position should give the volunteers some insight into library work, in particular the public service aspect of it during the induction weeks.
The period of employment will be for three weeks - Welcome Week and the first two weeks of the new academic year. The role of the student ambassadors will be to enhance the student experience by interacting with new students and helping them to become familiar with the library service.
The Ambassadors will primarily have a roving support role, helping students to use the self-issue, the laptop loan service and the printing facilities.
They may also field general queries about resources and will need to be able to demonstrate how to use the catalogue and find material on the shelves.
They may help to man the Welcome Stand in the Library which is a promotional event as well as assist staff with library induction tours at the start of term.
