    How to use this Handbook

    This handbook should be used as the main source of information concerning Circulation policies and procedures for work study students at the Robinson Music Library. Students should become familiar with this guide early on and continue to utilize it as a reference point, especially when a supervisor is not present. Additionally, the guide will be used as a primary means of training, and students are expected to become comfortable with a majority of the contained information during their first semester of employment.
