Breaking the Cycle: Using LibGuides to Train Student Workers
Training student workers is repetitive, time-consuming, and covers significantly repetitious material. To provide a more baseline student worker training orientation, the Access & Learning Services Librarian at a small liberal arts college constructed online interactive tutorials with embedded photos, videos, and capstone quizzes using Springshare's LibGuides 2.0, Google Forms, & Flubaroo. As student workers complete each training module, they earn an electronic badge from Credly which can be displayed on their LinkedIn or Facebook profiles, and work study supervisors can focus group and one-on-one training sessions on higher-level tasks rather than rehashing the basics. Future modules will cover ongoing library projects, allowing work study assistants to work on projects aligned with their particular talents and interests. LibGuides 2.0 provides a dynamic platform for student worker training and instruction.
