The LIBRARY TECHNICIAN 1 performs basic technical duties and/or provides basic customer assistance in support of library services in an operational unit or section of a university library. Some positions in this class may monitor the work of students.
This is the first level of a three-level series. At this level, employees have a general knowledge of available library services and provide routine information on the location or availability of material, resources, and services. Employees at this level receive regular direction from a higher level technician or librarian and perform basic tasks within well-established guidelines. At this level, employees have limited independent decision-making and limited responsibility for directing, coordinating, training, and scheduling work of lower level employees, student staff, and volunteers. The work requires a basic knowledge of library and unit operations, and review of work by a supervisor may become more general as job proficiency is obtained.
